Obama buddy linked to corruption charge

Quinshaunta Golden, former chief of staff to one of President Obama’s closest friends, Eric Whitaker, will plead guilty to a massive kickback scheme and has agreed to cooperate with investigators, according to The Chicago Tribune. She will admit ”to bribery, theft and obstruction of justice . . . in a $400,000 state grant kickback scam she is accused of trying to cover up,” the Tribune reports.
Whitaker, who is one of Obama’s close circle of powerful Chicago friends, that includes Valerie Jarrett, denies any knowledge of the scheme and is not named in the case.  [Source]
