No one besides Karl Rove has done more to politicize the GSA than Lurita Doan. This woman had no clue as to how to run a huge federal government department and most likely got her job because she was a ‘loyal Bushie’. Ms. Doan had also been criticized for proposing to cut $5 million from the GSA Inspector General’s budget to limit the office’s ability to audit contracts for fraud and waste. From the NYT via TO:
Lurita A. Doan has been forced out as head of the General Services Administration, the federal agency that oversees billions of dollars in contracts and manages thousands of government-owned buildings.
In a stormy two-year tenure as the agency’s administrator, Ms. Doan has been accused of improperly mixing government business with politics and of trying to steer government contracts to her friends. Democrats in Congress said she violated the Hatch Act, which makes it illegal for government employees to take action that could influence an election.
Ms. Doan’s resignation as administrator was requested by the White House on Tuesday, and it takes effect immediately, the agency said on Wednesday. It released a statement in which Ms. Doan said, “It has been a great privilege to serve our nation and a great president.“
Much of the criticism of Ms. Doan came after it became known that on Jan. 26, 2007, a deputy to Karl Rove, then President Bush’s chief political adviser, gave a briefing to employees of her agency that identified incumbent Democrats in Congress whom the Republican Party hoped to unseat in 2008, as well as Republican incumbents who seemed vulnerable to defeat.
Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya Lurita. Bon Voyage…too bad Congress never followed up on the Hatch Act violations.
The loyal Bushie kept the Congressional committee in the dark, like a proverbial mushroom. From WaPo on todays hearing:
Former White House aide Sara M. Taylor refused to testify today about White House discussions surrounding the firing of nine U.S. attorneys last year, but, treading carefully around a White House claim of executive privilege, did offer some details about the episode.
“The president has made the determination that the disclosure of this information would interfere with the operation of the executive branch,” Taylor said as the committee hearing opened. “I intend to follow the president’s instruction. I do not have the ability independently to assess or question the president’s determination.”
She added: “In light of the president’s direction, I will answer faithfully those questions that are appropriate for a private citizen to answer while also doing my best to respect the president’s directive that his staff’s communications be privileged.”
She works for the citizens of the United States first..Then BUSHCO! When will these neocon freaks figure it out? They have no shame in putting The Shrub before the rights of the citizenry to know what specious lies and criminal activity has taken place. They will do everything in their power to protect the most crooked President ever put into office.
Sick bastards and bitches all. Hitler couldn’t of done his dirty work without all his loyal underlings..and neither can BUSH. These individuals are quitting like its a freaking contest and looking forward to continuing their careers in what? Lobbying is a real good guess I think. Congress needs to hold these fuckwits in contempt. They need to pull out all the damn stops and hammer this assholes with everything they can throw at them. Make them squirm for Christs sake! Also..Freddy Fielding can kiss my ass..he better get started its an all day job for that smarmy bag of batshit.
