Are Obama’s Appointees Complete Frauds?

Columnist John C. Dovorak is one of my favorites. He writes for PC magazine and Marketwatch. He has been doing a little research on a couple the the Obama appointees namely CIO Vivek Kundra. It seems that Kundra is not who he says he is. Read the article here.

Apparently there is no record of the degrees that he says he has.

trying to actually verify his supposed MS in Information Technology from the University of Maryland, College Park campus. The registrar has no record of it. In fact the current University of Maryland grad department doesn’t even show this degree as being commonly available to anyone. A search of his college records shows no attendance after he received his BS degree in Psychology on 12/20/98. In fact his last day of school 12/19/98 wrapped up the six years it took Kundra to obtain his undergraduate degree.

The article explains that the company that he ran was a one man operation that showed sales of $67,000. He apparently lied about teaching at University of Maryland. He has no idea about technology and he is apparently responsible for approving $18 million for a new website. You could have people updating the site by hand all day long for $18 million and you could do it for several years!! It may be laughable that Obama was hoodwinked and bamboozled this time, but it it OUR money that this FRAUD is spending.

He was busted for stealing shirts from JCPenny’s in 1997. 12 years ago he was stealing from JCPenny and now he is stealing from me and you. That is quite a step up. Nice Job Kundra, nice due diligence Obama.

And his sketchy background was disconcerting. It included a 1997 bust for stealing shirts from JC Penny’s and the later bust of his former staff by the FBI at the DC office during a bribery investigation.

FBI raids office of Obama appointee

It seems that the Obama appointee for the office of Chief Technical Officer (I think he is the first ever federal CTO) Vivek Kundra had his office searched this morning in connection with a bribery investigation. Full story here.

Federal agents this morning are searching the office Washington, D.C.’s Chief Technology Officer.

And the beat goes on. Tax cheats, conflicts of interest,  and now the President’s pick to run the technology office being investigated for corruption. I guess they do politics in D.C. the same way they do politics in Chicago.

I am predicting the Obama response, “He had no knowledge of any wrong doing, he is uniquely qualified and deserves a chance.”

Update: Before I could get this post approved this article was posted by MSNBC.

The FBI vetted his White House appointment. If he had been thought to be involved in any corruption at that point, it would have been flagged, one official says. But, the official cautions, who knows where the investigation will go from here?

How good can their vetting process be? It seems like every other appointee has some scandal!
