Schweikert called it “not a particularly pretty circle.”
He sent an open letter to Obama on Monday asking Obama to cease purchasing copies of his books using taxpayer money, and remit any royalty payments based off previous State Department purchases to the Treasury Department.
“Receiving royalties from government purchases of your book is exactly the type of out-of-touch Washington behavior that the American people are weary of and will no longer tolerate,” the letter reads.“Whether this has been done in the past or not, it should be stopped immediately.”
State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said in an Oct. 26 briefing that all embassy book purchases “are done in strict accordance with government procurement standards.”..
My point: To make it Rich has to abide by A Moral Standards...I will remind all prominent leaders in Washington, DC: The "Book Royalty" Purchase by David Cheever of Citibank is not only violating this important criterion but also entering the criminal offense..
Let us witness what lies ahead and History Never Lies!!!
By the way, Rep. Schweikert has been informed of my posting!!!
