Obama 'Pay Czar' received six-figure salary, documents show

Obama lied ... again!

From Judicial Watch:

When President Obama appointed Washington lawyer Kenneth Feinberg "Pay Czar" in 2009, the press reported that he would perform his duties pro bono. Dozens of mainstream media stories confirmed that Feinberg, founder and managing partner of the Washington, D.C., firm Feinberg Rozen LLP, would not receive a salary to set pay limits for more than two dozen executives at companies receiving government bailouts. For example, Forbes magazine reported in August 2009, "Feinberg is receiving no compensation for his role."

However, Judicial Watch has obtained the Treasury Department's June 8, 2009, welcome letter to Feinberg, congratulating him for being selected "Special Master of Executive Compensation" and listing his annual salary at $120,830. Judicial Watch has also uncovered a "Notification of Personnel Action," from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management dated June 8, 2009, also establishing Feinberg's salary level at $120,830.
