Swampity swamp swamp swamp:
President Trump on Tuesday announced his nomination of Gordon Hartogensis, brother-in-law of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), to lead a federal pension agency.
Hartogensis, who is married to the sister of McConnell’s wife and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, is set to become the director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), which provides federal insurance on private sector pension plans.
The official White House announcement included little information on Hartogensis, only noting his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science and technology management without providing any up-to-date career information.
Amazing. Trump just nominated Mitch McConnell & Elaine Chao’s brother-in-law to lead the nation’s pension agency. The White House announcement doesn’t even list a current job for him & WH won’t answer questions. Below, his announcement vs. a typical one >> https://t.co/58Vu6GzLwC pic.twitter.com/LL5zsexfuF
