Former Obama Adviser Scores Hollywood Gig


A top adviser to former President Obama just picked up a job with one of the biggest talent agencies in Hollywood.

Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to Obama for eight years, will begin a lucrative career at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) located in California.

Jarrett was the head of Obama’s Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs offices. In 2008, Jarrett was also a member of former President Obama’s transition team.   She was heavily criticized by conservatives after Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch revealed that her father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.
