Rep. Jan Schakowsky's Husband, a Convicted Felon, Helping Obama Lobby for Iran Nuclear Deal

As reported by The Washington Free Beacon in an article entitled "Democratic Congresswoman’s Convicted Felon Spouse Heading Progressive-Financed Non Profit" by Morgan Chalfant, Robert Creamer, a convicted felon and husband of Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, is assisting the Obama administration in lobbying on behalf of its upcoming nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Chalfant writes:

"The husband of Illinois Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Robert Creamer, who committed $2.3 million in bank fraud in the 1990s, is currently leading the anti-conservative Americans United For Change, the Illinois Review reported.

. . . .

The convicted felon maintains ties to the White House. On Monday, Creamer participated in a private conference call held by White House officials that brought voices from liberal organizations together to discuss how to pressure Democrats and other politicians on Capitol Hill to back a nuclear deal with Iran, the Free Beacon reported."

As reported yesterday in another Free Beacon article entitled "White House Officials Plot Ways to Pressure Lawmakers Into Supporting Iran Deal" by Adam Kredo:

"White House officials on Monday held a private conference call with liberal organizations to discuss ways of pressuring Democrats and other lawmakers on Capitol Hill into supporting a nuclear deal with Iran that is expected to be finalized in the coming days, according to an audio recording of that call obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

. . . .

Robert Creamer, a member of the liberal political shop Democracy Partners and the general consultant to the anti-Republican Americans United for Change, urged participants on the call to 'step up' their pro-Iran efforts.

'We have to take to our memberships all over the country,' Creamer said during the call. 'We all have to step up. The other side will go crazy with intensity.'

Progressives should target Democrats by 'blitzing the hell out of the Hill,' Creamer said.

. . . .

'Let me just also note, my wife, Congresswoman Schakowsky, just yelled across the room to me to make clear to everybody that we have to be clear that this is a good deal because it prevents Iran from getting a nuclear weapon,' Creamer said."

Yesterday, I sent an email to Schakowsky, informing her that the "deal" will not prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, but rather will permit Iran to build a nuclear arsenal after 10 years (if it doesn't cheat before then - which it will). I have not had a response from Schakowsky, and I do not expect to hear back from this Jewish woman, who is unfazed by the possibility of a second Holocaust.
