How did actor Kal Penn Get his White House Gig?



[URL=“”]]( how did the pot smoking b-class semi-famous actor get a high profile, yet everyday job working for the President? Why did he want to drop everything and work for President Obama? He’s in the Harold and Kumar movies and had a stint on the medical Drama House. How did Obama pick him for THIS job. Did Penn want it for himself? Did Obama give it to him because he knew him in a more personal manner?

Or is there something more benign about Obama’s mentorship that makes him want to mentor people who appear to pop out of nowhere exactly like him.
