CHICAGO - Robert Creamer, the husband of Democrat congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, is a convicted felon. He pleaded guilty to defrauding banks out of 2.3 million dollars in a check-kiting scheme along with violations of federal tax laws. The crimes were committed in relation to running his failing non-profit organization, paying his salary, and keeping him in the manner to which he was accustomed.
Creamer is now leading a multi-million dollar non-profit group called Americans United for Change. The group is backed and financed by the usual progressive suspects, National Education Association (NEA), the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Service Employees International Union (SEIU), MoveOn.org, Occupy Wall Street and other progressive groups.
The purpose of this enterprise is to force so-called super PACs to disclose their donors. They are offering a $25,000.00 bounty to the first employee of a corporation who can prove their corporation secretly donated to a political non-profit organization during the 2012 campaign.
Creamer is a member of the Chicago Democratic Machine, known as the Chicago Democratic (Crime) Family. He was a political consultant to recently imprisoned former governor Rod Blagojevich, a friend of political consultant David Axelrod, and mentor to current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who started his political career working for one of Creamer’s non-profit organizations.
Of course, the groups supporting Americans United for Change, and Americans United for Change itself, are hiding behind the same non-disclosure they want to impose on others. Therein lies the brazen hypocrisy of progressives, the Democrats, and the left in general. More HERE
