Sources: Rahm hires OMB official as senior adviser

By Al Kamen and Philip Rucker
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has hired a top budget official to be his senior adviser, setting off a round of musical chairs in the Obama administration.

Robert Nabors, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, is moving to the West Wing to become senior adviser to Emanuel, according to sources with knowledge of the move, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of personnel moves. Nabors will focus on appropriations, budget issues and other matters.

Nabors, the No. 2 budget official under OMB director Peter Orszag, is a former Clinton Administration official who and spent several years as a senior appropriations staffer on Capitol Hill.

Nabors will be replaced on an interim basis by Jeffrey Liebman, an associate OMB director, who joined the administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, where he was a professor of public policy specializing in economics.

The sources said Gene Sperling, counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, is a leading candidate to become the permanent deputy, a position that requires Senate confirmation. Sperling held senior positions in the Clinton Administration, including director of the National Economic Council, and was chief economic adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign.

Other candidates include Liebman, who like Orszag worked under Sperling in the Clinton administration.

URGENT TO RAHM: The Obama administration must restore human and civil rights in America by taking down ONGOING Bush-Cheney programs of personal destruction that endanger the rights, and health of all Americans. Case in point:

CELL TOWER MICROWAVE WEAPON SYSTEM ATTACKS, IMPAIRS 'TARGETED' AMERICANS, SAYS VETERAN JOURNALIST

• Why so many cell towers saturate the American landscape -- urban and rural.

• Weapon system patents reveal silent, powerful attack system in YOUR backyard.

• American human rights atrocities under the cover of national security.

WHY ARE THE POLITICIANS SO NAIVE, SO BLIND TO EVIL?

NOW IT'S OBAMA'S GESTAPO USA. WHEN WILL TEAM OBAMA ACT?

• Reporter exposing gov't cell tower microwave torture held hostage to community stalking, police-protected, GPS-equipped goon squads -- apparently coordinated out of DHS-administered fusion centers -- that burglarize, vandalize and terrorize -- officially-enabled lawlessness that afflicts many thousands of other unconstitutionally targeted and persecuted Americans.
