There We Go Playing Politics Again!

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee yesterday asked General Services Administration chief Lurita Alexis Doan to testify about allegations that she made “misleading and false” statements to an independent investigative agency.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) invited Doan to testify before his committee June 7 about statements that she made to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which interviewed her during an inquiry into whether she had violated the federal Hatch Act. The act restricts executive branch employees from using their positions for political purposes.

The special counsel’s office questioned Doan and numerous GSA political appointees about a Jan. 26 presentation of 2006 election results by Karl Rove‘s political affairs deputy at the White House. Several political appointees told investigators that Doan asked them after the presentation how they could help Republicans in 2008.

The special counsel concluded that Doan’s sworn statement appeared “to have been purposefully misleading and false,” and noted that Doan “knew that none of the above named witnesses had ever been subjected to written disciplinary action,” according to the report.

Doan has until June 1 to respond to the report before it is forwarded to President Bush. Only the president can decide whether agency chiefs should be disciplined under the Hatch Act. Discipline can range from warnings to removal from office.


DUH! So, this goes nowhere! Bush will accuse Dems of playing politics.

If you threaten Karl Rove you are in deep doo doo! So, Doan points out that her accusers who made the allegation against her were biased because they were poor performers. She said that “there is not a single one of those who did not have somewhere in between a poor to totally inferior performance.”

This is what whistleblowers have to look forward to.

If you ignore your rights, they will go away!

    Doan is the one who didn’t realize her microphone was still on when she was testifying before Congress. She whispered to one of the persons near her that she didn’t dare drink from the glass of water provided to her because she was afraid they would be able to get her fingerprints off it! She’s a reich wing paranoid freak and she has every reason to feel that way. She’s a criminal along with the rest that work in our current government or who are connected to it.
