There are some "windfall profits" with which Lord Obama has no problem. A few millski from writing books about himself? No problem. A six figure income for a made-up job in Chitown for the wifey? No problem. $8 Million/ year (give or take) to Rahm for doing pretty much nothing but use his rolodex while he was out of public service? Cool wit dat.
"Perella Weinberg's founder, Joseph Perella, made Rahm Emanuel rich. In his two-and-a-half years between the Clinton White House and Congress, Emanuel made $16.2 million working at Wasserstein and Perella."
So what? Who or what is Perella Weinberg? A hedge fund that has been threatened by Lord Obama. Welcome to Chicago, Venezuela. Formerly known as the United States.
