    That was term fine extended to the Pritzkers over 15 years with no interest ...of course. It goes out to 2016 if they even bothered to pay it. They like to do that shit. So my 12 cents is on they never paid a dime.

    I'll never forget how one of her apologizers who came on here ,who called her Penny; and said "she would fix this" when the manager was turning on the heat lamps. Claimed she was on vacation and didn't know anything about it.

    I threw up flags about her right after the 2008 transition. Of course everyone was still in the Obama can do no wrong mode".

    Her relatives sued her after the father died for screwing them out a significant part of the estate. Her and her brother  were claiming "They didn't deserve it".

    She was writing letters on behalf of Superior bank until 1999 as she came on the board. The FDIC had enough and shut it down in 2001.

    That's one hell of a Commerce Sec. ya got there Obama. Nothing but red flags, horns, stop signals and alarms and poof he goes right through em and nominates her. The GOP should just love her. She's one of them.  

    Ahh the Status quo.

      It is shocking the nerve the rich have that rules of morality don't apply to them.

      I had read each piece separately over the years and each report made me dislike her. But all together shows what a pompous woman she is.

      My biggest outrage is how she condones the bad working conditions of the Hyatt workers.   Cruella DeVille comes to mind for me.

      ..... that Obama went to Harvard not Hogworts.  It would take a magician, apparently, to nominate a moral and reasonable person to any such post.
