Rahm Emanuel Got Out Illegal Alien Vote

From our hero The Prowler at the great American Spectator:

Shadowing Rahm

By The Prowler

Published 6/18/2007

Rep. Rahm Emanuel is ducking questions about his role in the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s Citizenship USA Initiative, which he helped direct back in 1996 during the Clinton Administration.

Emanuel, in his capacity as a senior White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, was well known in Department of Justice circles as a “shadow Attorney General,” according to a former Clinton DOJ official.

“Rahm won’t say anything about it now, he’s scared out of his mind that he’s going to get tarred for his role in this thing, but he was very much involved in directing policy at DOJ, particularly on immigration policy,” says the former official now in private practice in New York.

Meanwhile, Emanuel has been attempting to send reporters asking about his role of late in other directions. According to a reporter for a Chicago daily who asked Emanuel about his activities at DOJ, “He said that it was all a Harold Ickes operation.”

Emanuel was identified in a 2000 DOJ Inspector General report as a key player in a taxpayer-funded scheme to fast-track legal and illegal immigrants through any means possible for citizenship so that they could vote for the Democrat party. The program was called Citizenship USA.

CUSA outsourced some INS citizenship requirement programs (English language testing, for example), and was designed to speed up citizenship opportunities so that newly minted citizens could vote for the Democrat party, if not in 1996, then in 1998 and 2000.

Emanuel has denied any role, though the 2000 report makes clear he was involved. Now, as reporters have begun asking questions, Emanuel has refused to comment. According to one eyewitness, when Emanuel was recently approached by a Los Angeles Times reporter who has been asking about CUSA, the congressman from Illinois turned and walked quickly in the other direction.

Of course our one party media will ignore this completely.

Who could be more squeaky clean than Rahm Emanuel?

Why only this week our watchdog media is studiously ignoring this report from the DNC’s Associated Press:

Report: Rep. Emanuel Has Millions In Blind Trusts

Trusts For Emanuel Or His Children May Be Worth Up To $28 Million

Jun 14, 2007

(AP) WASHINGTON A financial disclosure report shows that U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) still has much of his assets in a blind trust.

But one fact remains clear: the Chicagoan is a millionaire many times over.

In his report for 2006, blind trusts for either Emanuel or his children were valued at between $6.5 million and $28 million.

Emanuel’s share was between $5 million and $25 million. It brought in between $250,000 to $400,000 in income.

Last year, Emanuel was chairman of the House Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

How on earth could an honest politician ever amass such a large fortune?
