Hopefully some good fireworks today. Pritzker is as corrupt as they come, and this is a Chicago payback job for her bundling massive $$$ for Obama. Her family is Chicago way all the way. And...it broke this morning that she undereported her income by 80 million last year. I'm sure it was just a rounding error.

Valerie Jarret is in the hearing this morning.

I HOPE they grill her on the failure of her bank. They made racist, high-risk mortgage loans and then bundled and sold them. It all went tits-up and was just one of many instances that prove Pritzger is no businesswoman. Rumor has it that Penny bought and paid for a mansion for Barry in Hawaii for when he leaves office.

Remember Mitt Romney singing "America the Beautiful" to scenes of Caribbean islands where the GOP nominee had invested some of his considerable wealth? So do Republican Senators who plan to question Commerce Secretary nominee Penny Pritzker about her own off-shore assets at a confirmation hearing today, a congressional source tells CNN.

"There's a certain level of hypocrisy," said the congressional source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

With net worth estimated at $1.85 billion by Forbes Magazine, Pritizker, a business executive and heiress to the family that founded the Hyatt hotel chain, is poised to become one of the wealthiest cabinet members in U.S. history.

Earlier this week, she amended her financial disclosure reform after initially underreporting her income by nearly $80 million, according to a filing her attorney made with the Office of Government Ethics. The attorney blamed the omission on a "clerical error."

Earlier this month, Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley, who does not sit on the Commerce Committee examining Pritzker's nomination, called for greater scrutiny of her vast family trusts and accused President Obama of a double-standard.

"Every nominee's offshore tax avoidance activities should be examined as part of the nomination process," Grassley said in a statement. "It's hypocritical to overlook tax avoidance when it's convenient."

The president seemed fully aware of the potential for a contentious hearing when he announced Pritzker's nomination on her birthday. "For your birthday present, you get to go through confirmation," Mr. Obama quipped. "It's going to be great."

Republican senators are also expected to ask Pritzker about her time leading Superior Bank which went belly up in 2001. The Chicago area bank was widely considered a pioneer in subprime mortgages and the securitization of those investments, years before the recent housing-driven financial crisis.

"That will be asked almost certainly," the congressional source said. "There's a lot to go through."

On Thursday, a White House official defended Pritzker, saying “Penny is one of the most accomplished and highly respected women in business today."

"With more than 25 years of experience in the real estate, hospitality, senior living, financial services and other industries, Penny knows what it takes to build, grow, and invest in a business, and will be a strong advocate for policies that help grow the economy and create jobs," the official said.

Pritzker, a key fundraiser for both of President Obama's two White House campaigns, was considered a front-runner for Commerce secretary following the 2008 election until questions were raised about her finances.

First Net is what Sen. Rockefeller is talking about- wanting a nationwide broadband network for first responders. He is pounding on Pritzker to get it done if she is confirmed. Can anyone see any possible sinister uses for this massive project? (which Sen. Rockefeller said wouldn't cost the taxpayer a dime)

I think they'll confirm her. They've gone way soft. Thune just brought up the offshore trusts with a softball question. She says she doesn't control them.
