Obama Chief of Staff Scandal

From The Australian: Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, has been caught on the FBI wipetaps discussing the names of possible Senate replacements with the Illinois governor, who was trying to sell the Senate seat, and is being pressured to resign.

The TimesOnline also has a story on this scandal that threatens to involve Obama’s Chief of Staff before his administration can even take office.

Of course a reasonable person might wonder why the American press is downplaying this story so much (they now only reluctantly cover such stories after the world media notices, otherwise they ignore them), but after their part in the recent election it is not surprising.
