Benron Bukkake hires a professional liar

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Reserve, Inc. (a privately held, for-profit entity) is on track to hire a veteran lobbyist to help manage its relations with Congress at a time of heightened attention to its role in national affairs, a source familiar with the situation said on Friday.

The Fed plans to hire Linda Robertson, who previously worked for now-defunct energy company Enron, as well as the Clinton administration.

The U.S. central bank has been at the forefront of government actions to limit damage from the financial crisis it created, which began in August 2007.

Robertson was vice president for government affairs at now-defunct energy company Enron Corp from November 2000 until she closed its Washington office in early 2002. Enron collapsed in scandal in 2001 and her work there may raise some eyebrows.

Before that, she was an assistant Treasury secretary for legislative and public affairs under then-President Bill Clinton.
