As a result of "strategic partnerships" with Wachovia and Bank of America, The Race has succeeded in lowering mortgage application requirements and watering down documentation standards. Illegal aliens have secured countless federal and private home loans over the past decade thanks to the lending industry's version of "don't ask, don't tell."

In addition, Munoz's group collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded "community development" projects. And the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services kicked in $25,000 to co-sponsor the group's annual conference in 2010.

Munoz's multi-culti armor has shielded her radical lobbying from scrutiny. You'll recall that the Obama administration made a lofty vow to end lobbyist conflicts-of-interest as we know them. The declaration was crystal-clear: "No political appointees in an Obama-Biden administration will be permitted to work on regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years. And no political appointee will be able to lobby the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of the administration."

But something got lost in translation when the White House brought registered lobbyist Munoz aboard -- to work on the very open-borders agenda she pushed at The Race. Team Obama invoked a shady "public interest" exemption to waive the lobbyist ban because, it determined, "Ms. Munoz's knowledge and expertise are vital to the functioning of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs."

Has Munoz recused herself on any of the myriad public policy issues she has advised the president on over the past two years? Who knows? The most transparent administration ever refuses to disclose recusal orders involving the nearly 100 lobbyists and ex-lobbyists on its payroll. Obama's "Razist" revolving door isn't a victory for "civil rights" or the 99 percent. It's a triumph of politically correct business as usual.
