Eric Whitaker, a long-time friend of the President, has been uncooperative with investigators looking into taxpayer money being misused in the Illinois Department of Health.

Although Whitaker is not accused of any wrongdoing, he has refused to answer questions about his relationship with a woman who plead guilty to stealing $400,000. The former director for the Department of Health has ties with Obama going back to Harvard.

From the White House Dossier:

Obama, who has hung out with Whitaker since the two were grad students at Harvard, worked his connections a decade ago to get Whitaker his job at the Department of Health, according to an earlier Sun-Times article. Obama provided his former associate Tony Rezko with “glowing recommendation” for Whitaker that was apparently passed on to Rod Blagojevich, then the Democratic governor of Illinois. Rezko, a Blagojevich contributor, was at the time helping the governor find people to run state agencies.

Whitaker’s Chief of Staff was initially charged with bribery and theft, but plead guilty to the theft charge. The President continues to play golf with Whitaker.

    I have so much hope that you guys will finally grab Chicago away from the Democrat thugs who use the government to enrich themselves at the expense of all the people they claim to be helping. The governments of Chicago and Illinois are nothing but crime syndicates.

      It is possible. Obama is going down. He’s still flapping his jaws about cutting CO2 emissions and shutting down mfg to curb climate change etc. But President Obama is no longer in possession of a mandate from Heaven. His agenda has been made vulnerable by his own actions. He was rejected by the voters because of his administrations policies. He has failed in every way. Thus, the time has come for top Democratic leaders to drop their pet issues and tell Obama, “No More Mr. President. It’s time for you to leave.” The Republicans had the guts to force Nixon to resign. Now it’s the Democrats turn. The top echelon of the Party has a responsibility beyond their own position to do what is right to make the changes that are necessary to change course. Will they rise above Party politics and remove Obama now? Or will they allow Obama to continue down the path of imminent danger of world war three, financial collapse and global pandemic? The next few days will tell.
