    Well this is fun. Harold Hamm, "the truck driver", was named energy advisor to the Romney campaign. Curiously enough he donated nearly a million dollars to a Romney Super Pac.

    I wonder which other obscenely wealthy dude is going to pony up for a position in the government.

    Your link didn't work..so I fixed it.

    Liberal Dem calls for resignation of White House jobs czar - TheHill.com

    Nothing in there about contributions.

    Oh..and Immelt's a Republican.
