Hillary Clinton’s pollster, Mark Penn, received funds for two of his firms from the recent stimulus bill. The same bill that was supposed to put jobless Americans back to work. The evidence that this bill was merely a pay off to all of DC’s cronies continues to pile up.
Mark Penn received nearly $6 million in funds (From the New York Daily News):
Hillary Clinton pollster Mark Penn is looking at some pretty sweet numbers – namely $6 million in federal stimulus contracts awarded to two firms he controls.
The Hill newspaper reported Wednesday that $5.97 million from the $787 billion stimulus package helped preserve three jobs at Burson-Marsteller, the global PR firm headed by Penn.
The Obama administration awarded the contracts to Burson-Marsteller to work on a public-relations campaign to advertise the national switch from analog to digital television.
A portion of the funds also went to Penn’s polling firm, Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, according to federal records.
Please save the moral equivalency – this is rampant on both sides of the aisle and the corruption needs to be stopped!
