Van Jones, the Obama green jobs czar who resigned shortly after midnight Sunday, did not fill out the exhaustive questionnaire White House officials required of every Cabinet-level secretary and deputy-secretary position.
An administration official said special advisers to the president, or czars, are not required to fill out the questionnaire that runs 7 pages and contains 63 questions.
The entire questionnaire, the official said, is reserved for appointees who must win Senate confirmation.
Let's put this in perspective. President Obama put Anthony Van Jones in charge of overseeing the spending of $30 billion in stimulus money and didn't even have him fill out a simple questionnaire? Many McDonald's do a background check on managers.
