Obama pays Hillary's bills with our money

Stimulus money--about $6 million--pays off Marc Penn, Hillary's pollster. I guess that answers the question about where are the jobs.

And here's his version:
    "A public relations firm headed by Hillary Clinton's former campaign strategist shot back Wednesday at a report saying it received nearly $6 million in federal stimulus funds, blasting the claim as "fundamentally inaccurate."

    The Hill newspaper reported that two companies run by Mark Penn -- Clinton's pollster during her 2008 presidential run -- received $5.97 million from the $787 billion stimulus package so he could preserve three jobs at his public relations firm, Burson-Marsteller.

    The firm had secured a contract to work on a campaign advertising the nation's switch from analog to digital television, and the Hill reported that $2.8 million of that contract was given to Penn's polling firm, Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates.

    But Burson-Marsteller on Wednesday disputed the newspaper's report, calling it "fundamentally inaccurate" in a statement. The firm said it was awarded a "competitive bid contract" in 2009 to support the Federal Communications Commission's initiative to "educate and advertise the congressionally mandated switch to digital television."

    The firm said the contract, which included other vendors, was completed "under budget" and cost $4.36 million -- not $6 million." Fox News
Competitive bid, eh?

Is this the advertising firm that couldn't convince people there was a deadline?

Murray sez:
Obama uses our money to take care of his own. Gee, what do we use since he's providing opportunities for us to give him more?
