Curious Behavior by Senate Candidate 3: Jan Schakowsky
Rep. Schakowsky is carrying a FY2009 earmark for another Chicago-area nonprofit: The Save A Life Foundation. Who are they?
According to this November 17, 2006, ABC7 Chicago (WLS-TV) expose by I-Team reporter Chuck Goudie, The Save A Life Foundation is not an organization that represents itself truthfully. The organization was founded by a woman who claims to be a nurse who specialized in kidney transplants. But the school she claims she received her degree from has no record of her receiving one and the hospital where she claimed her specialization has records showing that her position there was akin to being a candy striper.
Sidebar: If I am not mistaken, the Arnie Duncan mention in this piece is the same man whom President-Elect Barack Obama is prepared to name as his choice for Secretary of Education.
