A Government Accountability Office report obtained by The Washington Times Wednesday shows that seven of Mr. Obama’s political appointees switched to career jobs without obtaining necessary approval from the Office of Personnel Management. Of those, four were later denied the jobs by OPM and three left their posts.

Congressional Republicans warned Mr. Obama last year against moving political appointees into career positions, and President Trump has stated frequently that he believes some employees in the federal workforce are Obama holdovers working against his agenda.

The practice of political appointees “burrowing” into career jobs is permissible when laws and regulations governing career appointments are followed. Administrations prior to the Obama administration also have converted dozens of political appointees into career government jobs.

    I believe that McConnell is wrong and not doing his job. He is not allowed to do only what he wants to do, he must do what is right for the citizens.

    THEY SHOULD BE DUG OUT AND FIRED.

    MCCONNELL IS WRONG WHEN HE WOULD NOT BRING A VOTE ON MAJORITY WIN VOTE TO THE SENATE AND ANY REPUBLICAN THAT DID NOT AGREE SHOULD BE RECALLED AND REPLACED.

    In some case it may be legal but in all cases it is wrong. As a Gooberment official or worker you should be immediately fired if you bring your personal political ideas into your job. As a federal ‘anything’ your first and foremost responsibility is to the citizens of this Nation and the Constitution. I would like to see our Gooberment find a way to go after these deviates…one thought is a poly-craft every year under strict supervision. Any and every Gooberment worker, regardless of their position, can make decisions that will effect outcomes for either party. Lois Learner is a perfect example!! As a retired VET who was stationed at the pentagon for a while, I know what’s going on.
    In case your wondering, I know how to spell government but until our Government gets back on tract of WE THE PEOPLE, it will remain GOOBERMENT!!
