The Republican congressman, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and campaign promiser of many investigations into the Obama administration, has launched a probe into what he says is overlap between Obama's political and presidential duties. Issa cites a campaign video that appears to have been shot in the White House, and says a March White House meeting the DNC set up with businessmen who all happened to be donors blurred that line — as does the access donors get to high-level administration officials, including the White House chef. This election will apparently be won or lost on the strength of his soufflés. [Politico]
