Are You Kidding?… RNC Candidate’s Firm Worked to Secure Obama Stimulus Funds For Clients
Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Wisconsin GOP and candidate for RNC Chair, who told reporters in October that “Obama should be executed” is in even more hot water.

Now, we find out that Priebus’s firm helped clients secure Obama Stimulus funds.
Frum Forum reported:
FrumForum has learned that Reince Priebus, the state chair for the Wisconsin GOP and a current RNC Chair candidate, is listed as working as a lawyer on a team which helps clients secure federal stimulus funds.
Despite multiple listings on his law firm’s website, Priebus tells FrumForum that he has never worked with his firm’s ‘Stimulus and Economic Recovery’ group.
Priebus is a partner for the law firm Michael Best & Friedrich LLP in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In February 2009, his firm announced the creation of a ‘Stimulus Legislation Team’, of which Priebus was listed as a member.
Dan Riehl at Big Government added this:
Reince Priebus is currently being touted as a front-runner to replace current RNC Chair Michael Steele. But Priebus’ leading role among a select group of high-powered Wisconsin attorneys targeting clients to assist them in maximizing stimulus dollars, at the same time the anti-stimulus RNC employed him as interim general counsel, raises some troubling questions, not just for Preibus, but for the Republican Party as a whole.
There is much more at Big Government.
