Car czar Rattner - another personnel problem for Obama


The Administration has had plenty of its appointees step aside, or withdrawing their name before being approved to their posts, due to indiscretions in their pasts such as dodging taxes or paying workers off the books. The latest problem with an administration official may be much more serious.

According toThe Wall Street Journal, "Steven Rattner, the leader of the Obama administration's auto task force, was one of the executives involved with payments under scrutiny in a probe of an alleged kickback scheme at New York state's pension fund."
