She was leaving anyways. It is about the appointment. That is the issue here. 300k as a liaison? Sounds like a lobbyist to me...

But until then, this isn't much of a story to me


That is exactly the lackadaisical type attitude people have that has gotten us to where we are now as a nation.

Quick, turn on your TV, American Idol is almost on.

And just WHY isn't this much of a story to me! (yet!)

Quick, let's check out some facts, let's see if the economy is affecting hospitals!

Chicago Hospital Hangs For Sale Sign, Citing Credit Crunch
A Chicago Hospital Closes, Starved for Capital and Buyerless
Hospital Industry Braces For Tough Times
Report: Economy is sickening U.S. hospitals
Hospitals making cuts due to economy
Ailing economy puts hospitals on critical list
Hospitals struggle with economic side effects
More than half of Alabama hospitals reporting their finances are losing money

Hmmm, could this be why they aren't filling the position she's leaving?

And this kind of jumping to conclusions is what got us into Iraq because there were WMD!

Which, in fact, helped get this nation to where it is today!

Thank you! Jesus. I posted up one and it got dismissed like it was nothing. Hospitals are fairly recession proof, but this isn't a typical recession.

They are hurting pretty bad.

Just a thought:

We are in a major recession. Not sure if you guys have heard of that. Generally the medical field is fairly recession proof, and I'm sure they are doing fine, but even they are feeling the effects of the spiraling economy.

While most of the cuts are entry level and low wage employees, even the high-overhead upper management jobs are being completely phased out for the time being.

I'm not even sure how this is "news worthy" unless you have some real reason to believe something fishy is/was going on.


And it's not in the least bit suspicious that the position didn't exist prior to her being there (the raise was what, a fringe benefit?) and won't exist now that she's gone. No, not in the least bit suspicious at all.

It's not exactly unheard of that a position be created for a powerhouse individual. You know, the type of person who graduates with honors from Princeton.

And of course it is no great mystery why the job would be scrapped after she left.

What exactly are you suggesting she did?

Well just what do people who makes 300k plus do? Did she even have an office and staff? What were her primary responsibilities, achievements and track record? A person who makes that kind of money is either making or saving a lot more for the company to make their job worth it.

How does a job worth 300k plus disappear or become obsolete after two years? Sounds like they could have outsourced it for far less if the job was a temp.

Why does her job title mean absolutely nothing to anyone who reads it.

No, I suppose that's true. Still there is:

1. She was promoted to the position after Obama took the Senate seat
2. The position didn't exist before; but how did they ever get along without that position???
3. The position included a significant pay raise; sounds like a pretty important position
4. The position won't exist again now that she's gone. Must not have been THAT important.

In case you're waiting for someone to say it, then here it is - it smells like someone's husband used some special favors and/or influence to get a nice cushy seat created for the little missus at her job - Chicago political influence stretching as far as it does in that city, after all.

Of course it's all speculation. We won't ever know one way or the other.

It should be looked into. I won't disagree with that.

Wonder when she collected her last cheque?

I'll bet she did a bang up job for the hospital during the past year while she was on the road campaigning for her husband.

Reminder to Irish Mick:

This is a conspiracy theory website. Therefore, when something (like this) happens and it could be part of a conspiracy, we are free and even encouraged to discuss it.

Where there is smoke there is often fire, and it looks like there is plenty of smoke here. If all you can offer is a dogmatic (look it up if necessary) defense of anything and everything obama, save it it because we've heard it all before.

With this issue, it is a combination of the people involved, the timing and the large amounts of money for her salary that are making people ask questions and make it more than just the same thing happening to the average worker.

You forgot something. Breaking News: An employee is promoted to a job when her husband is elected to a position where he can do his wife's employer some good. The employee is then given a raise that is out of all proportion to the job she does. When the employee steps down, there is nobody waiting who is a wife of a state senator to fill the job so it gets eliminated.

I am surprised that Blago's wife wasn't chomping at the bit to get that sweet job.
BTW Michelle's part time salary dropped to $100k while she went part time during the campaign. Why didn't she just take a part time weekend job at J. Crew to get the discounts?

J. Crew? Is that where she got the infamous 'black widow spider' dress?

Who says Blago's wife wasn't after that job? Maybe events just happened a little faster than they all calculated.

Hey, as long as you can prove all of that, we've got no problem. So far, all you really know is that she had the job, and that after she left it wasn't refilled.

That's all you know. You think she either didn't deserved the pay or the job (or both). Whatever, that's fine. Don't state things as fact when you can't prove them to be true.

Again, there is a political conspiracy forum if you guys want to go crazy on stuff. Do and say anything you want there, I don't care. In fact, you can hint at most things here, and I'm fine with it.

However, when people make non-sequitur observations and state them as fact, I have to call BS.

And statements like this:

Really? What are you on queer eye for the straight guy? Who gives a damn?

Certainly seems sort of suspicious if you ask me. Enough so, that yeah.... I'm probably going to lean towards some very obvious conclusions.

Still 100,000 huh?

No wonder this county is tanking.
