Obama Political Aide "Forgot" about $40,000 Payment From SEIU?
Of course he did. Anyone could forget to disclose a $40,000 payment from the union that was instrumental in bringing Obama into office. It's not like he forgot to pay his taxes or anything, because we all know Obama would never have someone like THAT in his administration.
Such financial disclosures are governed by federal law, but Stan Brand, a former House general counsel and ethics expert, said the Justice Department is unlikely to pursue an investigation unless they suspected a “knowing or willful” intent to deceive.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it highly unlikely the Justice Department will see any wrong doing in these actions. Not the same Justice Department that forced two of their lawyers to stop all legal action against the Black Panthers who stood outside the voting place with billy clubs.
