Valerie Jarrett is one of President Obama's most trusted advisers. In December, Judicial Watch named Jarrett one of its "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicans", an event marked by the complete silence of the mainstream media.
Jarrett was also named in a 2008 Boston Globe report on Grove Parc, an immense housing complex largely funded by taxpayers and managed by her company. After burning through millions in public funds, Jarrett's management skills resulted in a complex that was largely "uninhabitable."

Valerie Jarrett, a product of Chicago's Daley machine, couldn't manage a housing complex with millions in taxpayer funds. But I'm sure she could manage, say, an overhaul of the $3 trillion health care industry. What could possibly go wrong?
