Barack Obama has been encored on the “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2010, a list published annually by the a Washington-based organization that focuses on transparency, accountability and integrity in the government, politics and law of the United States.
“Remember the promise President Obama made just after his inauguration in 2009? ‘Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency,'” said Judicial Watch in today’s announcement.
“Instead, Americans have suffered through lies, stonewalling, cover-ups, corruption, secrecy, scandal and blatant disregard for the rule of law … this has been the Obama legacy in its first two years.”
The full list, in alphabetical order, names: Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel; Sen. John Ensign, R-N.V.; Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.; Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-Ill.; Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.; Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky.; and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.
About Obama, the report said he was “caught in a lie” over what he knew about Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s “scheme to sell the president’s vacated Senate seate.”
