Who is Penny Pritzker and Why is She Obama's Campaign Finance Chair?

Yesterday, February 20, 2008, on Flashpoints Radio (Stream/podcast Link), an investigative report into Penny Pritzker, the Obama campaign finance chairman. She and her family were central to the innovation known as "Mortgage Backed Securities," which are now at the center of the financial crisis and real estate melt down.
Pritzker is one of the most active of celebrated Chicago patriarch Abraham N. Pritzker's 12 living grandchildren. A Harvard-trained attorney, Pritzker, 46, was chosen by her late uncle Jay to help oversee the family's vast portfolio of investments, including the Hyatt hotel chain and the Marmon Group industrial conglomerate. (Forbes Lists 2005)

One reason we don't hear the Clinton campaign raising this as an issue is because Penny's brother has apparently been playing a spokes-person role in Hillary's campaign. Reminds me of Enron buying off both Republicans and Democrats, along with accounting firms, the media, law firms, regulators, ....

Don't get me wrong. After Edwards dropped out I shifted my support to Obama, in as much as I support dismalcrats. But, if Barak Obama was smart, he'd thank her for her services and quietly let Penny Pritzker go.

As of today, Google search of Penny Pritzker Obama generates 9,700 hits. Expect that number to grow over the coming months. But today, you are led to comments on Nation Magazine article entitled "Subprime Obama" - Letters (article link in Sources below. One comment begins as follows:

One reason Barack Obama might not want to talk about the role of financially irresponsible bank board members in creating the subprime mortgage foreclossure financial disaster is that the national finance chair of Obama's campaign, Penny Pritzker, is a former board member of the failed Superior Bank S&L that engaged in irresponsible subprime mortgage lending during the 1990s.

Apparently Penny was into subprime lending before it became all the rage starting in around 2000. It continues:

Penny Prtizker's chairmanship was apparently "to concentrate on subprimelending, principally on home mortgages, but for a while in subprime auto lending, too," after the Pritzkers' bank acquired its wholesale mortgage organization division, Alliance Funding, in December 1992.

Back then they called it "predatory lending."

What else does Google dish up? Penny's contribution record. There are rumors she gives to republicans, and it's true. She gave $1,000 to both John McCain and George W. Bush in the 1999 primary. She also gave money to McCain for Senate in 1998. She also gave money to Barack Obama for his failing House bid in 1999. She gave to Bill Frist, Rudi Giuliani's exploratory fund, and several other Republicans in 2000. $4,000 to Joe Lieberman in 2006 (he's practically a Republican). Dennis Hastert in 2006, 2003. You get the idea. Our Noble Obama's campaign finance chair likes to spread money around. Grease the wheels so to speak. She's a billionaire. Woman of the people (NOT).

Impressive list goes back to 1987. Don't you love the internet? That's why net neutrality is so important.

Now that I've whet your appetite, dig a little and leave your comments below.

Another article about the "Obamagate/Pritzker/Superior Bank Scandal" was posted on Feb. 29 on the Huffington site. See following link:

Shouldn't we be more concerned about Zbigniew Brzezinski, Obama's foreign policy adviser?

John said...

Very interesting.

Looking at the proportion of this lady's political donations, they are overwhelmingly for Democrats. The donations to McCain and Bush seem to be out of her character.

John

She is a complete hypocrite. Read the front page of the Washington Times(10-29-08), and you will see why. You talk about the ordinary hardworking family...she and the rest of the board broke the spirit which eventually took the lives of some of those people. I could not live with myself. Just like Biden, who makes so much and gives back so little, I would rather die poor but know I gave my best to help those who need it. Let's think of mother Theresa. Who will make it to heaven. Not Penny Pritzker.

Obama doesn't broadcast the relationship, but Penny along with Bill Daley were Inaugural Co-Chairs. Well rewarded for all their financial contributions and support!! The machine rolls on. Did you ever hear the media mention this?? Penny was also the first named cabinet officer to Secretary of Commerce which she of course had to decline. They couldn't have the Congress digging into her unsavory past (especially the collapse of her bank due to its subprime -predatory- lending practices) and the loss of millions of dollars for her bank's customers. Pritzker made a multi million dollar donation to Univ of Chicago Hospital at about the same time Michelle Obama took over a cushy six figure job (that was pretty much of a scam). She got to write off the bank losses and the donation. David Axelrod's marketing firm handled the marketing for the program that misled the public about the mission. Check out for yourself the details. It's much like the chicanery you see coming out of the White House. You say one thing for public consumption, to buy votes and gain power and use smoke and mirrors (Axelrod style marketing) to conceal what you are really doing. The gullible, uninformed public never knows the difference. That's what they count on!! Meanwhile, they make money, gain power to make more money and gain more power. And people are too busy watching American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and who knows what else while our country is hoodwinked!

Do you believe in fairies? Femme-enfant figures whose pretty feet twinkle with cheap louboutin shoes red sole sorcery?One of our favourite fairies comes in the form of Eva Lomesco, the actress and once muse of :"Le Palace" nightculb. Steeped in Eastern European mysticism furthered by her blond halo of hair, Slavic bone finease and energy into My Little Princess, her directiorial film debut.
My Little Princess took eigtt years to come into fruition and involved a tangle of personal battles and professional triumphs; allowing Ionesco to exorcise elements of her childhood."I feel more reconciled," she says. Becoming a director was key to her evolution." It gave me so much pleasure from start to finish," she says.Being a recognized actress nuturally helped-Ionesco has worked with directors Roman Polanski, Patrice Chereau and Jacques Doillon. It gave her the confidence to approach Isabelle Huppert when they were both on the same film set."Isabelle was amaing throughout the project," Ionesco recalls. "She completely understood the unconscious side of my mother's behaviour and the bling craziness that devoured her." Ionesco also revelled in preparing Rumanian newcomer Anamaria Vartolomei for the role of Violetta, chosen amongst 500 other 10-year-old hopefuls."It tooj several months are already inderway for a sequel. "Making the movie was life changing," she says. "It made me realise that you can reach your creative Utopia but you have to be prepared to fight all the way."
The last sentence is coincides with our Christian Louboutin shoes.
