House chief investigator Rep. Darrell Issa released a recording Wednesday of a then-Obama Cabinet official leaving a voicemail asking someone to attend a fundraiser, escalating a battle with the White House over political activities within the administration.
Former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who resigned from the Obama administration in January to return to California, left Washington with $50,000 to $100,000 in legal debts, according to her final personal financial disclosure form, which she was required to file upon resigning her post.
President Obama on Monday nominated civil rights attorney Thomas E. Perez to be the next labor secretary, immediately drawing Republican opposition and another contentious confirmation fight on Capitol Hill.
Hilda Solis is leaving her position as secretary of labor -- or, as she saw the job, secretary for the Support of Unions.
It says a lot when a government jobs report is so out of line with reality that no thoughtful person can take it seriously. At best the new unemployment number is a fluke; at worst it is the product of partisan hacks.
It's official: President Obama is presiding over the worst era of unemployment in U.S. history since this nation was embroiled in World War II. On Friday, it was announced zero net jobs were created nationwide in the whole month of August. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis stammered, "I do believe that we're going in the right direction, but we need cooperation and it begins with members of the House and the Senate agreeing to do something now." Going in the right direction? It's a perfect admission of the cluelessness of this White House that the head of the Labor Department thinks zero new jobs and a permanent unemployment rate above 9 percent mean the country is headed the right way.

Wednesday was a whirlwind day for the Obama administration on Capitol Hill.
"There are a lot of folks that we know that are coming but wanted to ask you if you might help contribute or get other folks to help out," she says.
Ms. Solis says she did nothing wrong.
