Nepotism in the Bush Administration
Jo Fish over at Democratic Veteran
is annoyed by: Ahhh, Nepotism
. President Bush has nominated the vice president's son-in-law, Philip J. Perry, as general counsel of the Homeland Security Department. This would be the husband of Elizabeth Cheney, who was recently appointed to a position at the State Department.
I'm wondering if it's a matter that competent people don't want to work in this administration. Phillip Perry has to be taking a pay cut as he was a lobbyist for Lockheed Martin. Normally you go from government to private industry.
