Obama Nominates Penny Pritzker for Commerce Secretary — Hyatt heiress raised more than $1.3 million for Obama’s two campaigns [ TLR Note: Pritzker with disquieting ties to Jeffrey Bleich, John Roos, James Brosnahan, Tony West — all part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme i.e. embezzlement of $780,000 from California Bar Foundation coupled with laundering money from utility companies, especially Verizon — a client of Jeff Bleich of Munger Tolles & Olson]

President Barack Obama rewarded one of his most prolific fundraisers Thursday, announcing his nomination of Hyatt heiress Penny Pritzker to become the secretary of commerce.

“Penny understands that just as great companies strengthen the communities around them, strong communities of skilled workers also help companies thrive,” Obama said Thursday.

Pritzker is the chairman and chief executive officer of PSP Capital Partners, an investment firm, and its affiliate, Pritzker Reality Group. She has an estimated personal wealth of $1.85 billion.

Pritzker chaired the president’s 2008 finance team and delivered a haul of more than $1.3 million for Obama’s two campaigns, according to Open Secrets. A long-time Obama champion, Pritzker donated $13,000 to Obama’s campaigns prior to his presidential efforts. Pritzker also personally wrote a $250,000 check for the president’s inauguration this year.

The nomination is not a surprise. Pritzker was considered for the position in 2008, and resigned her position on the Chicago Board of Education last month, fueling increased speculation she would be Obama’s commerce pick.

Notably, Pritzker has had a number of flare-ups with unions last year, and in the past, told Obama in 2009 that she opposed legislation for union-backed card check.

Despite a less prominent campaign role in 2012, Pritzker served as a co-chair of the president’s campaign and flew on Air Force One last summer–the same day the largest national hospitality workers union announced a global boycott of Hyatt Hotels.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
