Weekend Entertainment Courtesy of Peter Orszag

Ran into an Office of Management and Budget guy, last night. He told a fun Peter Orszag story.

Orszag was head of the Office of Management and Budget under President Obama, from 2008 to 2010.

While at OMB, he managed to divorce his wife, get a new girl friend pregnant and leave the pregnant girlfriend for  Bianna Golodryga, co-host of ABC's Weekend Good Morning America, whom he has married.

According to my OMB man, during holidays, Orszag amazingly used to send emails out to OMB staff writing that it was an important time to spend with family. The OMB inside joke was everyone asking what family would Orszag spend his time with.

Orszag is a total crony revolving door insider. He attended the Swiss 2011 Bilderberg conference at the Suvretta House in St. Moritz, Switzerland. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

He has spun through the crony revolving door to take a position at Citigroup, where he is Vice Chairman of Global Banking. No doubt the position helps him with his divorce payments, child support payments and leaves some left over to keep Golodryga in the lifestyle she has become accustomed too.

  1. Is anyone surprised at the moral vacuity required for these types of revolving door positions? Can anyone say Former SEC chief Mary Schapiro?

    ...looks like Orszag is showing John Edwards how it's done.
