    A high-level Homeland Security Department nominee who didn't disclose her past lobbying activities is raising more doubts about the Obama administration's stated commitment to openness and transparency in government.



    The Washington Times reports that President Obama's nominee for undersecretary of science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security once served as a key adviser for a group that lobbied the government to spend more money for bio-defense research.

    Obama promise of openness and transparency?

    Did you check the "good until date" on the package?

    I'm sure that you are past the expiration date.

    If you return it to the point of purchase he will be happy to exchange it for a new promise.

    Thank you for shopping at ObamaMart.

    If she didn't disclose it, how is that the administration's fault?

    Shouldn't vetting consist of more than relying upon the nominee self disclosing?

    It is called vetting MP!

    Could any thinking person really have any doubt about the lack of integrity of a Chicago Daly machine politician? The only thing this person is capable of is reading well from a tele prompter. His much vaunted transparency is completely opaque. His so-called ethical administration has beat out the Pelosi house for first place in lack of ethics. His claim to be bipartisan was a lie and was indicated by his partisan behavior as a senator This person epitomizes all that is evil in the radical left wing of the democrat party.
