Dick and Loretta Durbin – Feeding at the trough of the American Taxpayers


Don’t you love these sanctimonious tweeps who feed at the trough? The new thing is you just have your wife scurry about Congress and other governmental agencies in the role as a “lobbyist” and guess what happens? A little “something” finds its way into a bill. One of the most egregious is Congressman’s Mike Rodgers wife, In case you missed it and why the Benghazi hearing never got anywhere. Rodgers faux Benghazi report and his wife’s Defense interests But let me not get ahead of myself. Let’s look at Durbin.

Flashback to The Chicago Tribune . It appears Senator Dick Durbin’s wife is a lobbyist . It appears Dick Durbin voted on the Department of Education budget which had money that wound up with Eastern Illinois University.

Loretta Durbin, the wife of Sen. Dick Durbin, began lobbying in 1998. The following list at the link below includes her clients since 2000, the earliest year for which state lobbying disclosure records are available online. Her Springfield-based firms have lobbied the governor’s office, the General Assembly and state agencies for its clients, but she said she does not lobby at the federal level to avoid conflicts of interest with her husband.

    Honestly, I’m thinking about sending the grid coordinates for downtown Washington to Kim-Jung-Un … Yes, it’ll be a mess for a while, but we’ll learn to live with it.

      Chuckle time. There use to be a time when members of congress use to at least retire before they became lobbyist.. Now they just put their wife to “work” and collect the stash.

      It’s a lucrative proposition; either bring in a spouse as a lobbyist, or hire a hooker to serve as one’s secretary. Either way, the taxpayer get’s screwed. My high school counselor never told me about any of these possibilities.

      It is amazing how many are so unattractive. But most came into power before the days of that much coverage.

    Today’s I.Q. Test question of the day: What mulatto muslim 2008 presidential candidate subsequentualy elected not for the content of his character but for the color of his skin thought by most to have been born in Kenya, deemed to be either homosexual, bi-sexual or sexually confused as well as a drug using Hawaiian beach bum with lousy grades in high school given a free pass to university as well as named/ elected president of the Harvard Law Review while being the only person so named without writing a thesis, whose academic records are sealed, declared he would rid Washington of lobbyists? Hint- although a democrat members of both parties were slaves to lobbyists throughout his two terms in office and the practice is more out of control than ever thanks to his as well as former and most probably future presidents giving their wink and a nod to this most lucrative dog and pony show.
    Hint- he lives on billionaire’s yachts where he plots his shadow governments takeover of the United States government.

      It is interesting that this rather minor story made it to a house gathering of progs I found myself attending. Keep wishing, but I am getting concerned of this fellow McMaster. I didn’t have the time this morning, but looks like he has a bunch of leftover Obamaimites he doesn’t want to get rid of.

        ohhhhh…Bunk…you don’t even know the 1/2 of it, with McMasters, Mattis, Dunford…really dig friend, Breitbart and even Fox has the stories…got back to July 19 in your search engine concerning a hot meeting with these three and Trump. Did you know, our troops have been guarding China mining operations in Afghanistan? And Trump talked directly to the troops and those 3 jumped all over him for doing so? Oh yeah…THEY GOTTA GO…McMasters firing folks for supporting Trump and keeping Obama leftovers on because McMasters doesn’t believe there is deep state…oh yeah…dig, friend, dig. I know, you have a life…but since it has been too hot here in the great white north, I’ve been staying in and getting caught up on these articles. {grinning)

        McMaster

        You are absolutely correct

        He recently fired all the Trump supporters in his department because they listed the Obama holdovers to be fired

        So McMaster fired them instead

        Obama holdovers still hold their jobs

        Rumor has it Pompeo may take his place {{wishing and hoping}}

        …and while they’re at it toss out Dina Powell also as she was seen partying with Soro’s in the Hampton’s
