(New York Post, January 24th, 2009)
'Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama:
The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to
run "programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach,
volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority
In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to
$317,000 - nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator.
Oh did we mention that her husband had just become a US
Senator? He sure had. Requested a $1 Million earmark for the UC
Medical Center, in fact. Way to network Michelle!
But now that Mrs Obama has resigned, the hospital says her
position will remain unfilled. How can that be, if the work she
did was vital enough to be worth $317,000?
We can think of only one explanation: Senator Roland Burris's
wife wasn't interested.
