How does Axelrod get away with this?

Bloomberg reports: Two firms that received $343.3
million to handle advertising for Barack Obama's


David Axelrod

White House
run last year have profited from his top priority as president
by taking on his push for health-care overhaul.

One is AKPD Message and Media, the Chicago-based firm
headed by David Axelrod until he left last Dec. 31 to serve as
a senior adviser to the president. Axelrod was Obama's top
campaign strategist and is now helping sell the health-care
plan. The other firm is Washington-based GMMB Campaign Group,
where partner Jim Margolis was also an Obama strategist.
