Good riddance to bad rubbish

Embattled HUD chief resigns, cites family
Jackson makes no mention of investigation, Democratic pressure

Jackson, 62, has been fending off allegations of cronyism and favoritism involving HUD contractors for the past two years. The FBI has been examining the ties between Jackson and a friend who was paid $392,000 by Jackson’s department as a construction manager in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

I guess Americans just sort of expect this sort of thing from the Bush administration as a matter of course. Mike Brown, Alfonso Gonzalez… and the list of unqualified indivuals, in over their heads just goes on.

I wonder what the chances of his being brought to  justice are?

Infortunately, incompetency isn’t a prosecutable offence.

Fortunately, there is the whole cronyism aspect that might find purchase.

The next administration might just spend a lot of time prosecuting ex-Bushies.

Otherwise, it’s moral hazard for everybody! Par-tay!
