Obama Administration Gave Petraeus's Wife a $187,605-Per-Year Job
(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration named Holly Petraeus--wife of retired Gen. David Patraeus, who resigned last week as CIA director after revealing he had had an extramarital affair--to a $187,605-per-yer job in the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

The CFPB, created by the Dodd-Frank law, was placed by that law under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve. The funding of the CFBP, which comes from the Federal Reserve, is not subject to congressional oversight.

Mrs. Petraeus became a member of the CFPB Implementation Team on Jan. 12, 2011. She is now the assistant director for the Office of Servicemember Affairs. Her position pays an annual salary of $187,605, according to the communications office of the bureau.

The communications office also confirmed to CNSNews.com that Mrs. Petraeus’ post at the bureau did not require Senate confirmation.

The Mr. took the fall on fake, trumped allegations, but won't hurt for income because the Mrs. has that covered... no sweat.

It is amazing what the U.S. government pays it's employees. the private sector can't compete. I just read that a 3 star general gets over $200,000 per year in retirement pay. Congressional members get retirement pay regardless of whether they serve more than 1 term. Private sector employers can't compete with those kinds of perks. I know someone that worked long enough in the military sector, federal government sector and then in the county government to collect benefits from all three and still gets social security on top of that. Wow, if I had only known about all these government benefits when I was young and starting out, my life woud be totally different. I took the private corporate route instead and saw my retirement be totally wiped out. So I'll just have to work the rest of my life.
