Obama Advisor Got $100K Payday From Iran-Linked Firm
So here we have one of the biggest Obama surrogates getting paid by a firm tied with Iran. When will the insanity stop? November can't get here soon enough that is for sure.
Senior White House adviser David Plouffe was paid $100,000 for two 2010 speeches to a South African company with ties to the governments of Iran and Syria, the Washington Post reported Monday.
Plouffe spoke to a subsidiary of the MTN Group, a telecommunications firm, in Lagos, Nigeria, in December 2010–a month before he joined the White House staff.
In a comment to the Washington Post, the White House downplayed the speech, saying the company’s connections to Iran were not well known at the time.
“At the time, not even the most zealous watchdog group on this issue had targeted the Iranian business interests of the host’s holding company. Criticism of Mr. Plouffe now for issues and controversies that developed only years later is simply misplaced,” a White House spokesman told the Post.
