As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Prostitute Scandal: Dems Returned $20K Check to WH Aide’s Dad

Hmm. Follow the money.

In case you need to get up to speed: New indications have emerged that the White House may have tried, as the 2012 campaign season progressed, to cover up the possible involvement of White House advance team member Jonathan Dach in the Colombia prostitution scandal involving the Secret Service.

Here’s the latest. According to Fox News:

The father of a White House advance team member connected to the Secret Service prostitution scandal was refunded a hefty Obama campaign donation, records show, around the same time additional details about that possible link were made public.

The $20,000 donation was made by Leslie Dach — whose son Jonathan has been linked to the scandal — on Sept. 19, 2012, to the Obama Victory Fund.

One day later, Leslie Dach had a meeting at the White House with a top presidential economic adviser, according to White House visitor logs. One day after that, the lead federal investigator into the Colombia prostitution scandal said for the first time that White House personnel may have been involved in the incident.

On Sept. 24, 2012, campaign finance records show, the Obama Victory Fund returned the $20,000 donation to Leslie Dach . . .

(Dach’s) attorney Richard Sauber told in an email that the money was returned because Dach did not attend a fundraising event as planned — and “so the check (he thought) was either returned or not cashed.”

I don’t know. Why would Sauber have to attend an event to make a donation? Seems like the bar would be pretty high for returning a $20,000 check six weeks before Election Day at a time when the Obama campaign was hitting people up for $3 donations.

Another possible piece of evidence in this burgeoning scandal, the latest to rock the Obama administration. And as far as I can remember, it’s the Obama White House’s first sex scandal!

Here’s one of the ladies behind all the trouble:

Of course, of course, there’s no excuse for any of this. But you can see how such a person could cause problems.

In the video below, Washington Post investigative reporter Carol Leonnig, who broke the news that the White House was aware in 2012 Dach may have been involved, explains why this scandal could be a big problem for the White House: It’s possible the coverup, which could include the return of funds to Dach’s daddy.

Leonnig calls “demonstrably false” the White House’s dismissive response to the evidence that Jonathan Dach returned to his hotel room in Colombia with a prostitute. And she suggests that the inspector general who led the probe of the scandal on behalf of the Homeland Security Department may have attempted in various ways to cover up findings that could have implicated a White House aide.

  1. Fund Raising / fun raising
    Secret service / secret servicing
    On the bus / under the bus
    Press releases / press released

    It’s all soooooooo confusing.

  2. OT — Just saw Juan Williams on Cashin’ touting the Obama economy and unemployment down.

    I do think it’s time to shock Juan back to the real world from whence he came — put him on a flight filled with Muslims and people of Arabia–and see if he can remember the discomfort he felt when he was fired and blackballed by the libs for his “discriminatory” comment and before he found a haven at Fox.

    I am not suggesting he has to toe an ideological line but some objectivity and critical analysis would be refreshing. It’s like he’s wearing a choke chain and ValJar is holding the leash.

  3. Blah, blah, men acting badly.
    $20K is a lot of money to give away for a lot of people, but it’s peanuts in the world of Presidential campaigns where a meet and greet with the candidate cost $35K, and big donors just cough up hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes a million.
    The scandal (and fear) was the Secret Service putting themselves at risk for blackmail or coercion from nefarious foreigners wanting something that could possibly harm the President.

    As for this revelation harming the administration, pfft. If Benghazi, the IRS, the DEA, the military scandals, the VA, and all the rest just rolled out the door onto the front lawn of the WhiteHouse, this old story is a big nothing.

    • Isis reinforcemtns have been rushing towards Kobani in the past few days to ensure that they win a decisive victory over the Syrian Kurdish town’s ramaining defenders.
      The group is willing to take heavy casualties in street fighting and from air attacks.
      Notes from the article…

    • I just heard that news myself on Fox. They will have a press conference in a 1/2 hour. I hope at the P. conference they will explain how this health-care worker got it. My point, if the health-care people are getting it with, so called protective gear, etc. how is everyone else on the planes, airport, etc., going to avoid getting this?

        • Yes there seems, to be a thin time line of when a person is infectious.
          Health officials have interviewed the patient and are identifying any contacts or potential exposures.
          People who had contact with the healthcare worker (AFTER SYMPTOMS EMERGED) will be monitored based on the nature of their interactions and the potential they were exposed to the virus, the department says

  4. The police chief of Iraq’s Anbar province, where isis are advancing, has been killed in a roadside bomb. Major General Ahmed Saddag was killed when the bomb targeted his convey near the provincial capital Ramadi.
    In separate attack, 22 Kurdish soldiers died in a triple car bomb attack in the eastern Diyala province.

    • The Islamic Army has superior human intelligence compared to ours. They knew where he was going, what route he would take and his time-table. Meanwhile, we’re spending millions of dollars to take out parked, white Toyota pick-up trucks and empty buildings.

      • Exactly!
        I use to play games with my brothers and neighborhood friends. Cowboys and indians, good guy and bad guy game, tag, hide and go seek, etc.
        It seems that we spent more time thinking of tactics, strategy, etc., than this o crew is doing.

      • Can’t replace human intelligence — especially in areas like this — tribal, fanatical religion poor populace — etc. etc.

        Interesting. The other day I was reading some things about the military and I encountered a meme that Obama has been purging the military and altering it — eliminating disloyal officers and commanders — there was talk of a coup which of course, is ridiculous.

        • Fox did not mention where he was, only that him, nor the CDC were at this conference. The mayor spoke at the conference as well as Dr. Dan Vargo. I did not catch the name nor title of the person, who spoke first at the conference.

      • WFAA news in Dallas says this health care worker was not one of the 48 being monitored. CNN says it’s a nurse and she wore protective gear.

        • Thanks AZ Granny. The doctor on Fox just now was asked:
          How did the person get it if they were in a full Hazmat suit.
          He said taking off the suit is very difficult. They may have touched something (fluid, blood, etc.) while taking it off, and not realize it at the time.
