Biden's "first ____________ " in this position policy starts to bite him in the ass.

So here's about the 5th odd minority hire that was the first whatever in a position to wind up being fired for a crime.


The Department of Energy official responsible for nuclear fuel and radioactive waste is no longer employed by the federal agency after two alleged airport baggage theft incidents, according to local reports and court records.​
Sam Brinton, the former deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy, was charged in December for grand larceny in Nevada. Brinton was accused of stealing luggage from Harry Reid International Airport, according to a report from KLAS.​
“Sam Brinton is no longer a DOE employee. By law, the Department of Energy cannot comment further on personnel matters,” a department spokesperson said.​

The 16 signatories alleged that Brinton “was placed on leave without providing crucial context clarifying that Brinton’s recent employment status was the result of a felony charge.”​
They called on Granholm “to set aside petty politics and appoint only the most qualified and dedicated individuals to influence America’s energy sector.” But the letter’s lead signatory, Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia, on Twitter suggested without proof that Brinton’s hiring to a non-political federal role was part of the Biden administration’s efforts to prioritize “wokeness.” Additional tweets from Clyde misgender Brinton.​
“I hope this fiasco makes the Biden Administration think twice before prioritizing wokeness above competence again,” Clyde tweeted on Monday.​
I've been talking about this shit since Biden took office. Nobody ever announces a hire and leaves it at that. It's always a "this is the first _____________ to hold this position." The entire administration has been nothing but hiring the "first whatever" for a position regardless of if they're qualified or not.

This includes the woman that hasn't been right one single time about inflation or anything else about the economy, a woman who completely fucked up Covid 19 messaging and response at the CDC to the point she was ordered to shut the fuck up and stay off of TV, several other "special minority" people who have been fired for other issues and now this person who hangs out at airports and steals luggage.
  • No vetting.
  • No background checks.
  • No reviewing resumes.
Just as long as their a mixed bag of something, they're hired. I've said all along it was a bullshit policy, and case after case I've been proven right. The only exception to the rule so far has been Pete Buttigieg. He's been pretty damn good.

All the others have been abject failures in every way, shape and form.

This is what happens when you hire based on nothing but WHAT they are vs. hiring for their experience, knowledge and performance.
