Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...
A new ad out by the Obama camp urges congress to "Give America a Raise"-- but at least one of the hard working Americans in the ad-- appears to be a Brit.
The President's PAC-- Organizing for Action-- released the spot-- which employs images of America’s work force-- in an appeal to raise the minimum wage.
But upon closer inspection, this woman from the opening seconds of the ad-- is riding the British Overground train-- not the D.C. metro, New York subway, or Chicago's “L”.
An OFA official says the error has been corrected-- and was a result of the clip being pulled from stock footage.
This kind of error is not uncommon.
Last year, we told you how another stock photo slip-up-- led to Pittsburgh's skyline making a cameo-- in Anthony Weiner's bid for New York mayor.
Job Well Done?
The company responsible for building the disastrously flawed ObamaCare website-- has been given several more government contracts-- all while HealthCare.gov was imploding.
The Daily Caller reports-- the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services-- has awarded six contracts -- totaling $37 million-- to CGI Federal -- since the launch of HealthCare.gov on October 1.
CGI tells The Daily Caller-- some of those deals may have been modifications of existing contracts.
Last month-- the administration fired CGI from its role as prime contractor of the ObamaCare website.

Send Him Back
And finally-- a Senator who is not afraid to admit what many Americans are thinking-- the U.S. would be better off-- without Justin Bieber.
Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner was on a morning radio show yesterday, when he was asked about the WhiteHouse.gov petition to have the much-troubled Canadian pop star deported.
That petition has almost 250,000 signatures.
The senator did not appear to know about the campaign -- but responded quote-- "As a dad with three daughters -- is there some place I can sign?"
Bieber has had numerous recent run-ins with the law, including a DUI arrest.
Warner later tweeted quote-- "It's true. I'm not a Belieber."
