Mark Penn, Hillary Clinton’s pollster in 2008, received about $6 million in federal stimulus money that was supposed to create jobs. This $6 million was used by his Burson-Marsteller public relations firm to create exactly three of those new jobs.

Additionally, Alfredo Balseraformer, the head of a Florida public affairs firm, received $70,000  in stimulus money.  Balseraformer was responsible for courting  the Hispanic vote for Obama in his 2008 Presidential campaign.
