OOPS! Sebelius “forgot” about $200,000 donation

Letter reveals more corruption from Obama’s pick to lead HHS

A second financial revelation has cast further doubt on Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ representation to the Senate Finance Committee of the nature of her relationship with late-term abortionist George Tiller.

Sebelius is President Obama’s nominee for the secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS). She is currently seeking Senate confirmation.

After Sebelius was recently found to have reported only a fraction of Tiller’s $38,450 in donations to her insurance commissioner campaign, Operation Rescue yesterday released a copy of a 2002 letter from Tiller stating that he contributed $200,000 to his political action committee (PAC) to assist Sebelius’ gubernatorial reelection.

In the letter addressed to members of ProKanDo, Tiller’s political action committee, Tiller warns against Sebelius’ “anti-choice” opponent Tim Shallenburger, and expresses regret that his “personal contribution of $200,000 to ProKanDo” was not enough “to alert voters to the anti-choice position of Mr. Shallenberger (sic).”

Tiller then urges constituents to raise another $250,000 to help spread the message that Sebelius’ opponent “does not trust women.”

Obama auto czar caught up in NY pension fund scandal

Steven Rattner, the leader of the Obama administration’s auto task force, was one of the executives involved with payments under scrutiny in a probe of an alleged kickback scheme at New York state’s pension fund, according to a person familiar with the matter.

A Securities and Exchange Commission complaint says a “senior executive” of Mr. Rattner’s investment firm met in 2004 with a politically connected consultant about a finder’s fee. Later, the complaint says, the firm received an investment from the state pension fund and paid $1.1 million in fees.

The “senior executive,” not named in the complaint, is Mr. Rattner, according to the person familiar with the matter. He is co-founder of the investment firm, Quadrangle Group, which he left to join the Treasury Department to oversee the auto task force earlier this year. Neither Mr. Rattner nor Quadrangle has been accused of any wrongdoing. Mr. Rattner did not return calls for comment. (more at WSJ)

Culture of corruption anyone?

More at NYT
“Mr. Rattner’s selection for the auto job was a topic of much speculation beginning in January, but it took several weeks to be settled. Two people close to the Obama administration said there were a handful of concerns about Mr. Rattner before he was named to his new position, but they declined to elaborate on what those concerns were.”
