House Begins a "Follow the Money" Probe Into Sebelius' Attempt to Shakedown Health Care Providers for ObamaCare Funds

@drewmtips' Dark Horse pick for the most important scandal gets some play.

House Republicans are starting a probe into Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius soliciting donations from companies her agency might regulate, to help sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

Sebelius in recent weeks has asked various charitable foundations, businesses executives, churches and doctors to donate money to nonprofit organizations, such as Enroll America, that are helping to implement President Obama's health care overhaul.

[T]he solicitations, through speeches and phone calls, have raised questions about whether a federal official can ask for money from groups he or she oversees.

And would therefore be in a position to either reward or punish by executive action.

It will be good to have the donors on the record-- so we can see how they fare as far as government favor in the future.

ObamaCare is broken; Obama "accidentally" asked for too little money (in order to sell it dishonestly to the public). So now Sebelius is ask-threatening groups to "voluntarily" pay additional money into ObamaCare to make it work.

Wink-wink, who knows, wink-wink, your donations might just wink-wink be really appreciated.

By the Way: If you are familiar with this blog at all, you know the pace of posts is 30-40 minutes between each one, unless it's a long essay or the like that I'm leaving up for a while (out of ego).

Point is, the Arrested Development thread was not going to stay long at the top... until I had to spend an hour defending my right to post about any subject other than Obama at all.
