California Official Who Misreported Unemployment Is Obama Donor : The Other McCain
Marty Morgenstern, the secretary of the California agency that substantially under-reported unemployment claims last week, contributed to President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential election campaign, The Daily Caller has learned.
Comrade Morgenstern donated a total of $4800 to His Imperial Majesty's election campaign in 2008, the maximum legally allowed.

More links at the link; from The Daily Caller:
On Oct. 11, the federal government reported that weekly jobless claims were down significantly, suggesting a dramatic national increase in economic growth and a steep decline in layoffs.  Jobless claims, according to the Labor Department, had fallen by 30,000 to 339,000, their lowest level since February 2008.
Early Thursday, the federal government finally revealed that California had, in fact, under-reported jobless data, skewing the national jobless claims results. This week’s updated jobs report corrected the error and showed unemployment claims spiking back up by 46,000 to 388,000.

Surprise, surprise, surprise! It'll probably just be called a typo or a rounding error.
