Working For You!

Sometimes, as a blogger, there's no value your commentary can add to the punch of a new story's first, declarative paragraph.  This is one of those times:

A senior lobbyist at the National Association of Manufacturers nominated by President Bush to lead the Consumer Product Safety Commission will receive a $150,000 departing payment from the association when he takes his new government job, which involves enforcing consumer laws against members of the association.

But it gets better yet. He's declared that although the $150K "severance" bonus forces him to avoid rulings on the association for which he lobbied, it's still fine for him to make decisions about the individual member companies.

The best government that money can buy....

I suppose you'd rather they didn't give him the money yet, but kept it contingent on good behavior? Talk sensibly, now.

Posted by: Allen Knutson | May 16, 2007 12:31:06 PM

How about he doesn't get the money at all if he wants the job? Or at least until 5 years after he leaves the government?

I wonder if it was obvious enough that my post above was made in jest.
Anyway, to SP: it sounds difficult to me to make rules about what gifts people can take when they're not yet government employees. Instead, the correct thing is for Congress to reject him, like they did Bolton.

That's what I meant- he's free to take the gift, of course, but if he wants to be confirmed he shouldn't be able to.
Can you say recess appointment?

Jeeze, if you people had your way nobody would ever get bribed!
