Half of Obama biggest fundraisers get jobs in administration

The much more important problem involves the government contracts given out to Democratic supporters. The fact that people who show that they care intensely about a candidate getting jobs doesn't upset me a lot. From the Wall Street Journal:

More than half of Obama’s 47 biggest fundraisers, those who collected at least $500,000 for his campaign, have been given administration jobs. Nine more have been appointed to presidential boards and committees.

At least 24 Obama bundlers were given posts as foreign ambassadors, including in Finland, Australia, Portugal and Luxembourg. Among them is Don Beyer, a former Virginia lieutenant governor who serves as ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein. . . .
