But DEMOCRATIC Chicagoland Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's husband has left the Clinton campaign in light of O'Keefe's expose.
The husband was not directly on Hillary's payroll, which allowed the secretary to disavow any knowledge of his action should he or any member of his team get caught.
A Democratic operative whose organization was helping Hillary Clinton's campaign announced Tuesday that he would be "stepping back" from the campaign after an edited video suggested that he and other staffers hired people to attend Donald Trump's campaign rallies and incite violence.
Robert Creamer -- husband of Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky -- announced his resignation in a statement after conservative activist James O'Keefe released a video under his organization Project Veritas Action, which showed Creamer and other operatives purportedly discussing methods for inciting violence at rallies for the Republican nominee.
CNN edits all its taped stories. Every. Single. One. Of. Them.
The CNN story is weird in that it does not quote what Creamer told O'Keefe, instead saying, "In the past, O'Keefe and his Project Veritas Action have been criticized for strategically editing footage to create false accusations about people or groups."Instead of quoting what Creamer told O'Keefe, CNN pretended it was a big ado about nothing.
Even though a congressional spouse had to quit the Clinton campaign over it.
CNN also failed to mention that Creamer is a convicted felon who as executive director of the Illinois Public Action Fund ran a check-kiting operation which resulted in a 16-count indictment for bank fraud on March 11, 2004. He bilked banks out of $2.3 million. Somehow he served only a few months in prison.
Do not try this at home.
John Kass of the Chicago Tribune explained this at sentencing ten years ago:
Creamer's judge was U.S. District Court Judge James Moran, the former Democratic state legislator from Evanston. Moran's son-in-law is Democratic political consultant Peter Giangreco, who has worked politics with Creamer and Schakowsky and had a seat on the board of one of Creamer's many organizations.
Judge Moran says he thought about recusing himself from the trial, but the defense and the prosecution didn't ask him to leave. So he stayed. A federal judge with a conflict of interest as glaring as that shouldn't wait to be asked. He should have walked away on his own. But he didn't.
This week, Moran gave Creamer five months in prison, which means he'll do about four months and change. And another year of home confinement, which in Creamer's case is a five-bedroom home in Evanston, said to be worth seven figures.Democrats are above the law.
One more thing the mainstream media won't tell you that Zero Hedge did: "Someone within the White House should probably explain why the vote-rigging, convicted felon, Robert Creamer visited the White House over 200 times during the Obama administration, including 45 visits with the President himself."
