PAPER: Obama 'Urban Czar' Campaign Donations Raise Eyebrows...


www.nydailynews.com

Buildings sprang up as donations rained down on Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion

The man who is President Obama's newly minted urban czar pocketed thousands of dollars in campaign cash from city developers whose projects he approved or funded with taxpayers' money, a Daily News probe found.

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion often received contributions just before or after he sponsored money for projects or approved important zoning changes, records show.

Carrion received hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations at the same time he and his development Board were considering public funding for numerous development projects.

Developers and employees, including construction workers made donations within days or weeks of their projects consideration for funding by Carrion. Over time, public funding for these projects totaled in the millions of dollars.

Seems like Chicago kingpins and fundraisers aren’t the only ones who enjoyed Obama’s friendship and patronage. Tony Rezko is likely only one of many who have influenced the “ethics” president over the course of his career in politics.

Will be interesting to see how the Obama administration justifies this one.

Looks pretty shaky IMO.

Another piece in a growing puzzle that reveals Obama's true nature.
There are others in his administration already and surely more to come.

Do you really think they care? Obama and Co. don't care what the american people think about graft and payoffs to their minions. We don't count.

Either Obama knew about this prior to naming him or Obama's people botched another interview screening.

With that extensive screening application he was making everybody answer I tend to gravitate to the notion that Obama was well aware of what this guy was doing.

on the avatar! These'll be everywhere before long, and illegal shortly after.

and No, they care only about a socialist agenda. Obama's planswere quite clear, between the lines of his first book.

Well aware, and probably a beneficiary of Carrion's largesse. Tit for tat in this admin.


deny ignorance.
