Ms. Jarrett has played the crony capitalism game well. Granted she did come from Chicago which has a climate which is highly conducive to cronyism, but she has been particularly adept.
We have chronicled her exploits in the past and this new information is not a surprise. This is how cronies do it. The connected get checks. That’s the way it goes. The bigger the government, the more opportunities for cronyism. That’s why cronies always want more government.

Chicago is known for its L-train. But it’s the gravy train that White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett prefers to ride.
In addition to the $173,922 Jarrett earns per annum as President Obama’s senior adviser, she is also paid an annual pension of $35,660 for the eight years she served as chairman of the Chicago Transit Authority, according to a Chicago Sun Times investigation.
