Meet shameless Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)

Felon hubby prog Robert Creamer designed Obama blueprint for social-justice fraud
A senior Democratic operative who defrauded banks in order to keep his Marxist community organization afloat is behind an influential book called Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win which left-wingers say has inspired them in their fight to turn America into socialist Europe.

The felon’s name is Robert Creamer and he’s a disciple of the Marxist founder of community organizing, Saul Alinsky. He’s also the husband of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), one of Capitol Hill’s most visible cheerleaders for DMV-style Big Government healthcare. Schakowsky acknowledged in a speech that the Democrats’ “public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single-payer.”

Creamer founded the radical group Illinois Public Action and this makes him a hero to the left, whose members don’t care that he wrote a series of bad checks to pay his salary and meet other financial demands.

As Glenn Beck noted on his TV show, the left is willing to overlook Creamer’s sins because “The ends justify the means.” Creamer, Beck said, apologized for his crimes, but said he had merely been overzealous in the pursuit of a worthwhile good cause. At his sentencing, Creamer said, “For the rest of my life I will continue to do whatever I can to work for social and economic justice.”

His wife seemed miffed that charges had been laid at all. Sounding inconvenienced, the congresswoman said she was “obviously disappointed that Bob’s sentence included incarceration, but we accept the judge’s decision and look forward to the day that we can finally put this nearly decade-long chapter behind us.” Schakowsky said she was gratified that her husband “has for his entire adult life devoted himself to fighting for a better future for others – he has been a constant crusader for social and economic justice in this country and beyond.”
