Former Obama Campaign Manager: No “Major Scandals” During Obama Years!

Obama’s former top campaign aide said he’s proud that “there hasn’t been a major scandal” in the administration during the past six years.

“I’m proud of the fact that basically you’ve had an administration that has been in place for six years in which there hasn’t been a major scandal,” David Axelrod said Monday during a discussion of his new book, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, at the University of Chicago. “I think that says a lot about the ethical strictures of this administration.”

Axelrod made the remark while defending Obama’s promised ban on lobbyists in the White House. An audience member asked why Obama broke his promised ban and has allowed a revolving door between lobbyists, Washington insiders, and the administration.

I can’t say that’s the case — it’s been pristine — but has it been light years different than it was before? Absolutely.”

“And I’m proud of the fact that basically you’ve had an administration that has been in place for six years in which there hasn’t been a major scandal.”
