DoJ Honors/Intern program politicization



It will surprise none of his friends that Civil Division chief Peter Keisler comes off among the few heroes in the mini-scandal, singled out for commendation in the Inspector General's report for the strong objections he raised to the subversion of merit/civil service principles. And of course it reveals a great deal about the U.S. Senate confirmation process that Keisler's name has for years topped the list of superbly qualified and fair-minded Court of Appeals nominees blocked by influential Senators as being too principled conservative for their tastes. More: Paul Mirengoff, PowerLine; Steve Chapman, syndicated/Chicago Tribune.
