Yesterday we took a humorous look at an embarrassing but relatively innocuous example of the lack of vetting by the Obama administration. Later in the day, Reuters and other news agencies reported on a less-innocuous example. Barack Obama promoted the current director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, to be Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, which would put him in charge at DHS once confirmed until a replacement for Janet Napolitano is installed. The White House apparently didn’t check with the Inspector General at DHS first, as Mayorkas is the target of an investigation into potential corruption regarding investor visas:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been nominated to be the deputy secretary of Homeland Security – and who could soon run the department – is under investigation by the department’s inspector general. …

The inspector general’s office sent lawmakers an email this week informing them about allegations Mayorkas had engaged in a conflict of interest and misused his position, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

The source said investigators are looking into whether Mayorkas had assisted in securing an investor visa – which had previously been denied twice – on behalf of Gulf Coast Funds Management

And this potential corruption has a very familiar name linked to it:

Gulf Coast Funds Management is run by Anthony Rodham, the brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.[/INDENT]
