Surprise! CA Official Who Underreported Unemployment Figures is Big Obama Donor

Posted by on Oct 19, 2012 at 8:25 am

Well knock me over with a feather. Bogus unemployment figures reported and who’s behind it? Why, an Obama donor. There needs to be a criminal investigation here, but don’t hold your breath.

Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential election campaign, The Daily Caller has learned.

On Oct. 11, the federal government reported that weekly jobless claims were down significantly, suggesting a dramatic national increase in economic growth and a steep decline in layoffs.  Jobless claims, according to the Labor Department, had fallen by 30,000 to 339,000, their lowest level since February 2008.

The good news for the Obama administration spread quickly, with outlets like CNN and Bloomberg declaring, “Jobless claims fall to four-year low.”

Gee, hard to believe Obama is trying to manipulate voters with bogus data. Next thing you know they’ll be claiming we’re in boom times.
According to campaign disclosure records, Morgenstern donated $4,600 — the maximum amount allowed by law — to the 2008 Obama camapaign, beginning with a $1,000 contribution to Obama for America in February 2008. Morgenstern followed up that donation with a $1,300 contribution in June, and then a $2,300 payout in early September.
To no surprise, Morgenstern has longtime labor ties. I wonder if all the media that reported the bogus numbers last week  will follow up with this obvious political manipulation?

    IT IS NOT LIBERALISM, please do not call it that. what it is is LEFTISM or statism. Today’s so called LIBERALS have nothing in common with the dictionary definition of liberal. In fact, it is the exact opposite of liberal in every way.

    Marty Morganstern, secret agent and apparacheki of the Obama Regime and criminal organization headquartered in our Nations Capital has been outed. This criminal organization was also caught this week entering into a voting fraud, one of the DNC operatives was caught on video tape giving advice on how to subvert the voting process. Good going Mr. Morganstern, you have joined that group that see’s no harm in breaking a few eggs to make an omelet.

    Well, nobody believed those numbers anyway. Nice job, Marty, you just put a great big nail in the coffin for the idea that an activist left government can fix the economy. It’s clear that they can’t; they can only lie about it. Remember the old saying: there are lies, damned lies, and then statistics. Marty, you are worse than a damned liar.

    If the dear leader wins re-election Marty will be put in charge of the chocolate ration.

    What was it that Enron, Worldcom and Global Crossing did wrong, that sent their executives to prison for very long sentences? Report wrong numbers? Improper accounting?

    Why do we pay public union employees double so they can commit what would be financial crimes in the private sector? Why are they immune from prosecution by the same laws when they are using American taxpayers money, instead of private investors money?

    Well, I’ve never been asked to have a Nielsen box, or to answer poll questions, or by the Feds or Gallup if I’m employed.

    So, who are these people answering the poll.

    And that makes me query – if you were a hard core Democrat and unemployed, might you not consider lying to the Feds or Gallup?

    But more importantly, if you were a civil service worker, would you not cook the books for Obama?

    That aside Gallup is showing quickly improving employment numbers, too, in October. So maybe it’s all above board.
