    This really could be a Bombshell explosion in the 2010 Elections...

    For the second time in five months,the Obama White House is being accused by Democrats of offering high ranking Government jobs in return for political favors. What no one is reporting is that this is a violation of Federal Law that can lead to prison time,a fine,or both according to Title 18,Chapter 11,Section 211 of the United States Code. The jobs in question? Secretary of the Navy and a position within the U.S. Agency for International Development.

    As usual the MSM has chose to ignore this very disturbing scandal. Gee i wonder what the MSM reaction would be if this President had an (R) by his name? I think we all know the answer to that question. I'm pretty sure Liberal Media outlets like CNN,NBC,and the NY Times would be up on their high horses today screeching about awful criminal corruption. Yet not a peep out this same MSM on this scandal. Pretty sad stuff.

    it's also BS unless they offered SOMEONE ELSE something of value IN EXCHANGE for a position.

    offering someone a position if they don't run against someone else is called...

    You could be right Xenophon. Might depend on the cooperation of candidates involved with the scandal. I'm still pretty shocked that the MSM has ignored this. Maybe i shouldn't be though. There are no R's involved so the MSM just doesn't care i guess.

    Oh....you mean "the way it has always been"....
    But I thought Obama was going to change that...

    Perhaps I misunderstood him when he said, no less than 1000 times..."I am going to change the way things are done in Washington"
