Tax Cheats, Unethical Lobbying, Now Porn Pushers for Team Obama?

That Obama fella knows how to pick ‘em, I have to say. First we get a former governor of New Mexico that has to bow out over possible participation in illegal pay-to-play scams. Then we get a series of tax cheats offered up for various positions on Obama’s cabinet and in his administration. Then we find out that Obama has “relaxed” his rules against lobbyists and hired a slew of them — with one of them, Wanda Solis, having unethically lobbied her own House colleagues at the same time she was guiding through the House the very bill she was lobbying for. She was in essence lobbying herself.

And NOW Obama has picked a porn pusher for the number 2 man at Justice.

Barack Obama has picked David Ogden for deputy attorney general. Ogden has a fairly extensive history as a strident defender of Playboy and other porn producers having represented such interests many times. He also once filed a brief against the Children’s Internet Protection Act saying that it should be declared unconstitutional that librarians be forced to limit the sorts of sites that children should be allowed to visit on library computers.

So, he is a porn pusher for everyone, kids included. At least he is non-discriminatory on that one.

Of course, not everyone is appreciative of Ogden’s desires to safeguard the rights of pornographers. Brian Burch president of the religious organization Fidelis has passed around a report critical of Ogden upon the Hill this week. Burch hopes to derail the porn supporter from being confirmed.

Chances are, however, that not enough voices well be raised against confirmation as Fox reports that Ogden has quite a few folks that have written letters of recommendation for him. Ogden has held quite a few offices in government over the years, mostly during the Clinton era. (BIO)</

Still, Ogden’s porn protection efforts just ranks him right up there with the cream of the crop that Obama is pushing to run various segments of our government. All we need now is to find out that one of Obama’s appointments was a drug dealer and we have the whole magilla covered

Do you smell that smell? Smells like “change.”
