Another total idiot …

with one comment

Cudos to Joel Engelhardt and Frank Cerabino of The Palm Beach Post for preserving in amber the latest example of hubris from the good people who are supposed to be looking out for our environment.

The South Florida Water Management District has hired its executive director’s boyfriend for a $120,000-a-year job with her administration’s watchdog.

Bob Howard was hired by SFWMD’s inspector general. The inspector general and his staff report to the SFWMD board on whether things are done correctly at the agency – the agency headed by Howard’s honey-bun.

Executive Director Carol Wehle told The Palm Beach Post she had no role in last June’s hiring so she saw no reason to disclose the relationship.

The problem here is not the obvious conflict of interest. The problem is bigger.

First, Whele is a liar. Nobody in a an organization is not attuned to what the top manager wants. That she would go along with such a hire shows a complete lack of ethics. That makes ethics down the line something that could cost you your job. Thus, she had something to do with the hiring in that she allowed it.

Second, it shows she has no regard for an inspector general’s office that is supposed to backstop bad decisions.

Third is hubris. The stupid twit thought she could get away with it.

This is what we call a monumental mistake.

You can make an honest mistake and recover. When you do something so fundamentally dishonest and get caught, it is curtains.

So goodbye Carol Wehle, you are just too stupid to be in government.
