Obama Appoints Mega-Donor’s Wife To UN Post

The wife of Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban has been appointed as the U.S. representative to the upcoming session of the United Nations General Assembly. Saban has been a mega-donor and at one time a top giver in the Democrat Party.

While he was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2008, he basically sat out the election that year. However, he finally wrote his first check to the Obama campaign and over the summer he donated $1 million to super PACS that backed Democrat candidates.

In Democratic circles, he’s largely been seen as a possible counterweight to big-money Republican donors like Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers.

Administration officials point to Cheryl Saban’s qualifications for the position, including nonprofit work with 50 Ways to Save Our Children, CARE USA, Children’s Network International, Mercy Corps, and Plan USA — as well as a long record of philanthropy and public advocacy.

What is most interesting is how a woman that no one elected or chose to represent them is appointed by Barack Obama to represent the United States before the world at the United Nations. And she is doing it simply because her husband wrote a generous donation to the Obama campaign.

What’s even more appalling is how Barack Obama talks about “big money” pouring into the Romney campaign, when his own has plenty “big money of its own. Oh the hypocrisy!
