A hard-hitting MSM investigation of Chicago crony bundler Desiree Rogers?; Update: WH invokes separation of powers

Nope, just kidding.

It’s another sympathetic MSM puff piece on the Friend of Valerie Jarrett/Obama bundler-turned-White House social secretary…from the notorious lefty fashion writer Robin Givhan at the Washington Post.

Shorter version: “She’s glamorous!”

Rogers will not show up to the House hearing on Crashergate.

In an attempt to put out the security fire, the White House announced “new” policies to prevent another party-crashing fiasco. Well, not “new.” Just the same old policies that had been in place during the last administration that Rogers flippantly ditched.

As expected and predicted, Team Obama isn’t throwing senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett’s close Chicago pal under the bus. The AFP headline: “White House backs top aide over ‘gatecrash’ flap.”

One Democrat thinks she should attend the hearing, via Jonathan Tilove:

Rich Masters, a former top policy and communications adviser to Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who now does crisis public relations for a living, said he would advise Rogers to appear at Thursday’s hearing.

“From a PR perspective, it is always advisable to be as open and honest as possible about these things,” he said. “It’s clear mistakes were made, but if she does not appear, you run the risk of you being the scapegoat.”

But at least she’ll be the best-dressed scapegoat in Washington, yes?


Update: White House invokes separation of powers to protect Rogers from testifying. The Crashergate couple won’t be accepting the invite either.
