Washington, D.C. firm GMMB got special treatment after former President Obama took office back in 2008.
GMMB was the strategy and muscle behind Obama and Hillary Clinton’s media campaigns. and also the 2012 and 2016 Democratic National Conventions. Obama paid GMMB close to $700 million in tv buys over the course of his eight year presidency to boot.
“The overwhelming majority of the $58 million funneled to GMMB came from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) created by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2011. The CFPB awarded the agency a whopping $43.7 million, about 75 percent of GMMB’s total federal funding stream.
The second-most lucrative government account for GMMB is a community service agency founded by Bill Clinton, the Corporation for National and Community Service, which awarded GMMB $13.1 million worth of contracts. Other agencies that awarded contracts to GMMB include the Department of Homeland Security ($1.6 million) and the Department of the Interior ($24,000).
The CFPB’s outsized role in payments to GMMB may fuel new controversy about the embattled bureau, which Warren came up with when she worked as an Obama appointee in the Department of the Treasury.”
This just proves once more that Obama was sneaky and lied to the American people.
“The optics are extremely ugly when you have a major Democratic insider receiving a massive amount of taxpayer money,” Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, a conservative political activist group, told TheDCNF. “I think any time a political consultant is getting paid on the political side and with our tax dollars, that deserve an enormous amount of scrutiny.”
President Trump is constantly cleaning up the mess Obama left behind and this is just another prime example.
