Obama's ethic waivers continues...

Calling President Obama's Executive Order on Ethics for Executive Branch personnel "the strongest ethics standards in U.S. government history," White House counsel Norm Eisen on Friday announced 10 more waivers for Obama administration officials.
The waivers will allow the officials to participate with persons with whom and entities with which "the appointees formerly had a professional relationship," Eisen wrote, "because there was a compelling public interest in allowing it."
It will be interesting to see when Obama runs for re-election, if he will have the "audacity" to claim that he had "the strongest ethics standard in U.S. government history"???
