Two recent flubs are beginning to make us wonder: Who is doing the vetting of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s political appointments for jobs in his administration?
A member of Dunleavy’s Cabinet, Department of Administration Commissioner Jonathan Quick, resigned Thursday amid accusations he lied about his business background.
Then, Art Chance, a tough labor negotiator who came under fire for Facebook comments described as racially charged and misogynistic, declined a job with the Department of Administration.
These kinds of things must be embarrassing for a new administration and easily could be avoided – and kept out of the headlines – by serious vetting. The Left and its pals in the media, it must be remembered, will pull out the stops to give this administration, any Republican administration, a black eye.
