Rainbow PUSH- Pelosi event 3/3/12
Up to 76 state workers of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) were required and paid by taxpayers to attend Rainbow PUSH National Headquarters on a Saturday when Nancy Pelosi endorsed Jesse Jackson Jr for Congress.
Last week, our investigation received national attention…
Sparked by Matt Boyle writing in the Daily Caller, our report hit The Drudge Report, Fox News, HotAir, Gateway Pundit, The Blaze, and National Dr. Savage Radio Show.
A courageous young lady from Southern Illinois blew the whistle. Read her sworn affidavit here.
It’s a hot story on Illinois radio: WIND- Chicago “Steve Cochran”; FM97.1- St. Louis “The Dana Show”; WROK- Rockford “Riley & Scot”; WTAD- Quincy “The Morning Meeting”; WJPF- Carbondale “Tom Miller”; WOC- Quad Cities “Jim Fischer”; and WMAY- Springfield “Greg Bishop”.
The event was required: ISAC Spokesman John Samuels admits it, “…it was a required event. [ISA]Corps members have required events.”
The event was political: Video, photos, tweets, job activity reports, and official state emails all corroborate the politics. The sworn whistleblower affidavit details it. Rainbow PUSH tagged event video: elections, election, campaign and politics.
Beforehand, the ISAC Executive Director, General Counsel and Chairman ignored an internal warning. Afterwards, agency directors followed up to execute on the PUSH- Pelosi plan for student loan forgiveness. See emails here.
ISAC required up to 76 employees to attend a political event at taxpayer expense.
Is there a cover up? Stay tuned for more.
