Neil Cavuto covers the unfolding story of the pResident offering an appointment to Scott Matheson, brother of Rep. Jim Matheson who has voted against Obamacare. Michele Bachmann is calling for an independent investigation of ‘vote buying’ in regards to this appointment.
Here is the article that started it all from the Weekly Standard:
Obama names brother of undecided House Dem to Appeals Court.
Tonight, Barack Obama will host ten House Democrats who voted against the health care bill in November at the White House; he’s obviously trying to persuade them to switch their votes to yes. One of the ten is Jim Matheson of Utah. The White House just sent out a press release announcing that today President Obama nominated Matheson’s brother Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
