Yosi Sergant Resigns after (NEA) National Endowment for the Arts Conference Call Scandal Reported by BigGovernment.com


Chalk up another one for the good guys at Big Government.com

Big Government.com, Big Hollywood.com and Andrew Breitbart strike again, this time it’s the NEA scandal. Yosi Sergant submitted his resignation from the National Endowment for the Arts. Where was the MSM in the initial states of this story? Where was their investigative journalism?

Embattled former National Endowment for the Arts communications director Yosi Sergant is out of a job.  Late this afternoon, the NEA released a short statement saying, “This afternoon Yosi Sergant submitted his resignation from the National Endowment for the Arts. His resignation has been accepted and is effective immediately.”  The agency provided no further details.

Sergant had been under scrutiny after leading a controversial conference call on August 10, where he encouraged artists to create work to promote the Obama administration’s agenda.  Sergant was initially removed from his post as communications director, but continued to work at the NEA.

So who will be next? Who in the White House acted in consort with the NEA? Maybe the MSM would like to investigate that. As many speculate, is Buffy Wicks next?

The White House referred to the NEA scandal as an appearance issue. Hardly. It is just as must an appearance issue as ACORN is. This time, they were caught. That is the only reason why any window dressing changes might occur.

Today White House officials are meeting with the chiefs of staff of the executive branch agencies to discuss rules and best practices in this area, a conversation during which they will be told that while the White House lawyers do not believe that the NEA call violated the law, “the appearance issues troubled some participants,” Burton said. “It is the policy of the administration that grant decisions should be on the merits and that government officials should avoid even creating the incorrect appearance that politics has anything to do with these decisions.”

      I am so sick of the White House firing someone when these illegal activities come to light in the hopes that this will end the scandal!! These recent scandals are deep seated, planned out, and they only do this when the alternative media exposes them. We can’t let up. This needs to be investigated thoroughly. Obama is so underhanded and we can’t let this gang of thugs continue to get away with this junk.
