    There is an ongoing congressional investigation of improprieties and possible fraud at the US Census, as the New York Post reports a rumor that in 2009, gearing up for the 2010 national headcount, the Obama administration wanted to put the Census under the auspices of senior White House aide Rahm Emanuel.

    Normally, the Census is administrated by the Chief of the Commerce department. Obama reportedly decided that Emanuel would be a superior overseer. The fact that a strident Democratic strategist such as Emanuel could have been at the helm of the Census, the main purpose of which is congressional redistricting, must have put Republicans in a lather.

    Last week, the Post reported that during the 2012 presidential campaign, US census data was manipulated to demonstrate a favorable decrease in unemployment from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 in September. The steep decline indicated Obama’s economy was looking much better. However, not only were these numbers false, but the US Census knew it. Moreover, the manipulating of data was allegedly pervasive and had been going on for some time.

    After reading many of his brother's writings - IMO, his brother Ezekiel contributed greatly to the architecture of the "Affordable" Health Care Bill and ("Zeke") has even been on Fox News defending the bill.

    There seems a definite connection between the Emanuel family and the president.

    ....There’s now a congressional investigation of how Census handles employment data. And we can hope that we’ll find out this was just an isolated incident.

    But let me tell you why it might not be.

    Back in 2009 — right before the 2010 census of the nation was taken — there was an announcement that the Obama administration had decided that the Census Bureau would report to senior White House aides.

    The rumor was that Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was in charge of the nationwide head count.

    The chief of the Commerce Department usually oversees the Census, which determines how many congressional representatives and how much money each state gets for the next decade. But the Obama administration had decided — the story went — that Emanuel was a better guy for the job....

    ...So here’s where my story picks up.

    Back in 2010, I started getting reports that the Census Bureau had some very unusual hiring practices. Census takers and supervisors — at risk of heavy fines — were reporting to me that large numbers of people were being hired only to be fired shortly afterward. And then rehired.

    I theorized at the time that Census was trying to make the job-creation totals look better nationwide in those bleak months leading up to the midterm congressional elections.

    This employment policy seemed too coordinated. The regional higher-ups at Census couldn’t be doing this on their own; there had to be a grander plan.

    I still don’t know what was going on.

    But then I heard about the falsification in Philly. This time, however, it wasn’t the employment numbers that were being doodled with. This time it was the unemployment data, which are gathered at the Census Bureau and handed over raw to the Labor Department....

    The connection goes much deeper than just one family:
