Since when is “skimming money” and diverting to something it was not originally intended for legal? The answer, the Obama Justice Department, perhaps better known as Chicago style politics.

Officials diverted millions of dollars slated for victims of the 2008 housing meltdown to politically favored third parties, including “left-wing radical groups,” according to the chairman of a House of Representatives oversight subcommittee.

Rep. Sean Duffy , a Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the House Financial Services oversight and investigations subcommittee, said Friday the officials “skimmed” off 3% from mortgage-related bank settlements. This created what he called a $500 million “slush fund” that could be steered toward favored groups.

“The first objective of a settlement is to make sure that we have victims who are made whole,” Duffy said, referring to millions of Americans who lost their homes during the meltdown that led to the Great Recession of 2009. “If you’re diverting money away from victims and sending it to third-party activist groups, you have victims who are being harmed not just once, but a second time.”

This seems to be another innovative way for progressives attempting to get around campaign finance laws, which coincidently is giving another progressive politician Mayor Bill De Blasio who is currently under federal investigation, and big time headache, for playing fast and loose with non-profit lobbying groups, by using those groups to funnel campaign donations.

Perhaps it’s just me, however when I read that funds are being “diverted” and dollars are being “skimmed of the top,” it sounds more like an organized crime syndicate, then the government of the United States.

Help get the word out. This money is not approved by voters to be used for liberal activism and it needs to be shut down.
