What does Obama and Strip clubs have in common?

Quote:
“What do a Chicago strip club
and the President’s campaign fund have in common?”

ANSWER: BOTH were paid- with public funds- as “VENDORS” to the City of Chicago.
_______________________________________

Yesterday, OpenTheBooks.com upgraded it's transparency portal to include the City of Chicago checkbook from 2002-2011.

It contains $74 billion in vendor payments. Last year 69,800 entities received checks.

Here’s what I found while scanning the data...

The City of Chicago approved checks to both The Admiral Theatre Inc, a Chicago strip club, and Obama For America, the president’s campaign organization. According to data received, both share the same “vendor code.” Yet, neither organization exists in Chicago’s current transparency portal: click here and here.

The Admiral Theatre strip club received $5,197.78 in City of Chicago checks. Sixteen checks range from $1.20 to $1,900. A buck twenty?

See a database of City payments to The Admiral here.

The check to Obama for America raises more questions. The campaign received a $1,000 check on August 28th, 2007. For some reason, they didn’t disclose this to the Federal Election Commission: click here, and Open Secrets- here.

Click here for my Freedom of Information Act Request seeking more information. See the detailed accounting data surrounding the check: vendor code, transaction id, PO#, fund, department, amount, check number, and date.

Surely, the City will have some sort of explanation. Because, public funds used for campaign purposes violates federal and state law. And, we know that no Illinois or city worker would ever violate those laws, right?

The City has five days to respond to our request for additional information. I can barely wait for the naked truth.

HHS Sends $5.9 Million to Program Run by Obama Buddy (U of Chicago program tied to MO)
White House Dossier ^ | 5-14-12 | Keith Koffler

Posted on Monday, May 14, 2012 1:49:21 PM by STARWISE

The Department of Health and Human Services last week announced it had awarded a $5.9 million grant to a University of Chicago Medical Center program tied to Michelle Obama and run by Eric Whitaker, one of President Obama’s closest friends.

The Urban Health Initiative, which received the award, was originally based on a smaller program launched during the last decade by Michelle Obama, who was an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center before she departed to become first lady. The UHI is headed up by Obama basketball and golf buddy Whitaker, who has known the president since Obama’s days in law school and who also vacations with the first family.

Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett also has ties to the UHI. Until resigning to go work at the White House, Jarrett was Chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center Board of Trustees. And in 2007, a PR firm run by former senior White House adviser and Obama political guru David Axelrod provided provided public relations strategy advice to the UHI, according to the Washington Post.


its a fun news day
