THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DISCOVERS THE CONSTITUTION:

Apparently they have a version that allows the Executive to spend unappropriated money if it serves his “constitutional responsibility” to wield power and hire friends.

I can’t find that clause in my own copy. I just find “No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law.” Maybe I’ve got an outdated version. But I’m sure my copy of the anti deficiency act is up to date. So is the provision making violation a felony.

The next Attorney General is going to be busy. Or maybe the one-after-next, since Holder may not be around much longer.
