Gateway Pundit: Obama White House Misled American Public On Van Jones

According to the NY Times(which is always an adventure), Team Obama has one of the most extensive and invasive vetting processes ever.  This is very interesting.

If its true (and I assume it is because Gateway Pundit has a copy of the questionnaire), then there are two possible scenarios:

  1. A highly admired friend of Obama lied on every question in the thing to be able to have a position in the Obama regime (unlikely in my opinion)
  2. Obama knew everything about this guy and it was all fine with him.  Truther, cop-killer supporter, communist, everything.
    Please visit the link at the bottom to Gateway Pundit.  They have the actual questionnaire and sample questions.

UPDATE:  Hot Air reports that the White House said they never asked him to fill out the questionnaire. 

Last November after the national election Team Obama announced to the American public that they would initiate the most extensive and invasive application process ever. Their vetting process would "go beyond what might have been expected."
The Obama White House was committed to "change."
The New York Times reported:

A seven-page questionnaire being sent by the office of President-elect Barack Obama to those seeking cabinet and other high-ranking posts may be the most extensive — some say invasive — application ever.
The questionnaire includes 63 requests for personal and professional records, some covering applicants’ spouses and grown children as well, that are forcing job-seekers to rummage from basements to attics, in shoe boxes, diaries and computer archives to document both their achievements and missteps…
Mr. Obama has elevated the vetting even beyond what might have been expected, especially when it comes to applicants’ family members, in a reflection of his campaign rhetoric against lobbying and the back-scratching, self-serving ways of Washington.
President-elect Obama made a commitment to change the way Washington does business, and the vetting process exemplifies that,” said Stephanie Cutter, chief spokeswoman for the Obama transition office.
