Culture of Corruption: The Max Baucus Edition

Sen. Max Baucus nominates his shack up honey for U.S. Attorney* job.

The only known qualifications for this bimbo Melodee Haynes** – other than Max's comment that she gets everything “up and up” – certainly seem to be pretty thin. Still, Baucus' connections were good enough to get her a “top official in the Justice Department's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention”. Spare me the blather about the independent and non-political nature of this gig; If a key Democratic senator' shack up honey is up for a job, she's getting it, qualification would just be a bonus.

It probably doesn't help much that the supposedly independent “third party reviewer” was a Baucus contributor.

* It's also interesting that Bernstein's post suggests that this isn't the first time that Ms. Haynes has had domestically related career “ issues”, or that her c.v. also sounds dodgy.

** Geez, her parents couldn't even spell “Melody” correctly. Strikes one as a sign that she was destined to be a shack up honey.
