$6 million for Mr. Penn? How is this possible?
The so called "stimulus" has been losing support for months.
In fact, most are pretty pessimistic: 67% Expect Unemployment Will Be The Same or Higher A Year From Now
And now we get this shocking news: Clinton Pollster Got $6 Million in Stimulus Cash
"Nearly $6 million in stimulus money was paid to two firms run by Mark Penn, Hillary Clinton’s pollster in 2008.
Federal records show that $5.97 million from the $787 billion stimulus helped preserve three jobs at Burson-Marsteller, the global public-relations and communications firm headed by Penn."
So we spent $6 million to save 3 jobs? That's insane!
What about the corruption angle here?
Did the Dems who voted for this know that $6 million would go to Mr. Penn?
If yes, then that's corruption!
If no, then they should lose their jobs for a lack of due diligence!
