Obama’s broken transparency promises

Victor Joecks

Eric Davis has great post up today over at TransparentNevada. Some good government groups have released a report card of President Obama’s transparency efforts. And while these groups gave the White House a positive review, Eric disagrees and lists his reasons why.

That revolving door for lobbyists and former officials? Still open.

Health care negotiations televised on C-SPAN? Campaign gimmick.

Waiting five days before signing legislation? Not even close to happening.

If you want to talk about ethical behavior to Washington, I suggest you start with Timothy Geithner, Tom Daschle, Nancy Killefer or Vivek Kundra.

Oh and there’s more. Be sure to read the whole thing.
