How now, corrupt Chao? Only the sleaziest people hired by Trump

Jaysus, this woman is as crooked as a dogs hind leg...

Quote:
The email arrived in Washington before dawn. An official at the American Embassy in Beijing was urgently seeking advice from the State Department about an “ethics question.”

“I am writing you because Mission China is in the midst of preparing for a visit from Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao,” the official wrote in October 2017.

Ms. Chao’s office had made a series of unorthodox requests related to her first scheduled visit to China as a Trump cabinet member, according to people with knowledge of the email. Among them: asking federal officials to help coordinate travel arrangements for at least one family member and include relatives in meetings with government officials.

In China, the Chaos are no ordinary family. They run an American shipping company with deep ties to the economic and political elite in China, where most of the company’s business is centered. The trip was abruptly canceled by Ms. Chao after the ethics question was referred to officials in the State and Transportation Departments and, separately, after The New York Times and others made inquiries about her itinerary and companions.

----------------------

Ms. Chao has no formal affiliation or stake in her family’s shipping business, Foremost Group. But she and her husband, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, have received millions of dollars in gifts from her father, James, who ran the company until last year. And Mr. McConnell’s re-election campaigns have received more than $1 million in contributions from Ms. Chao’s extended family, including from her father and her sister Angela, now Foremost’s chief executive, who were both subjects of the State Department’s ethics question.

I am not sure that the "Judge Kav is a rapist" is all garbage.  It's defnitely an overstatement, but not entirely garbabe.

There is little doubt in my mind that the now judge, then irresponsible male teen-ager with raging hormones, got s--t faced drunk at a party and did exactly what the lady accuser said he did.  Not to excuse it, mind you.

I think the victim overstated the impact it had on her life, too.  I also don't believe that one's behavior as a teenager should have much, if any, bearing on one's reputation that many years after said behavior occurred.

That Judge Kavanaugh is a sniveler and whiner is beyond doubt, there being video of him sniveling and whining.

Your're more forgiving than I am. Once a sleezbag, always a sleezebag. Kav may have done good things in his professional career (I really don't know), but that does not forgive what he did at that age.

That's one of the reasons I asked the question, 'Can you be a Racist AND a good person'. The same applies here. Can you be a Rapist, AND a good person'. In both cases, no. If you exercised your power over a woman for the purpose of non-consensual dominance and sex, than that is a disgusting part of you. And to think that a person with that in them is now deciding what is legal in this country is beyond embarrassing, it is shameful.

Well, thank you.  (Jesus is, too.)  I would only add that if everybody's fitness for high office was based on their behavior as a teenager, we would have a hard time finding people to hold office.

I understand your cynicism. It seems that the same people who seek power, are also the ones who probably shouldn't have it. Yet those that should, do not prefer the spotlight. It is a vexing dichotomy.
