Bush's Housing Secretary Affirms Use of Political Patronage

Think Progress has the break down on HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson openly admitting that a government contract was denied to a business because its CEO admitted to not liking President Bush.

While we've known that the Bush Administration has opened the public coffers to Republican campaign supporters, it still is striking to see the practice admitted to in such a bold fashion.

Of course, the obvious results of awarding government contracts based on political identity as opposed to competence has been borne out by CusterBattles with regard to Iraq and with overpriced & unused beds and ice deliveries to New England with regard to Hurricane Katrina.

    It appears that Denile is no longer a river that runs thru Egypt, but is a river full of shit here.

  • Could you please point out who exactly had their contract rescinded, when they entered into this contract, what the contract was for, and how much it was for ?
