If you’ve ever thought that Eric Holder’s Justice Department does and says some crazy things (and who hasn’t?), this information may offer some insight into the reason.
From the Washington Times:
According to a July 31 policy memo titled “Hiring of persons with targeted disabilities,” otherwise problematic mental deficiencies are no barrier to jump-starting a career at Justice. The memo lists a number of “targeted disabilities” that trigger special hiring privileges in compliance with President Obama’s Executive Order 13548. Among them are people with “severe intellectual disability,” “psychiatric disability” or other undefined “current severe physical, intellectual or mental conditions.” Most employers would balk at even minor mental disabilities in hiring a lawyer, let alone severe ones. But the policy states that the Cabinet department run by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. must “achieve a work force from all segments of society,” which includes those who are teetering on the edge of sanity.
This opinion piece describes the super-secret process designed to make sure the DOJ looks like Obama’s America.
Targeted mentally challenged individuals may be hired for unadvertised positions in a secret, closed-door process that otherwise would be strictly illegal. Standard requirements for prior work experience may be waived so that those who most need to prove they are up to the task don’t have to. Once hired, some of these special hires may have their privileged Schedule A appointments converted into career civil-service positions.
MMM …”Standard requirements for prior work experience may be wavied so that those who most need to prove they are up to the task don’t have to.” That sounds a lot like the procedure that got us our first Affirmative Action President.
As that great democrat Michael Dukakis famously said “A fish rots from the head.”
