Dems Rage After “Starkly Partisan” Census Appointees

Politico reports:

Last Monday, Commerce deputy secretary Karen Dunn Kelley [photo] informed Census Bureau director Steven Dillingham and his career deputy, Ron Jarmin, that the two new appointees, Commerce aides Nathaniel T. Cogley and Adam Korzeniewski, had been installed in senior roles at the Census Bureau — a move that blindsided both of them, according to a Census Bureau official.

Korzeniewski, now a senior adviser for Cogley, once worked as a Republican political consultant for the failed Staten Island congressional run of Joey Saladino, a Trumpy young YouTube star known as “Joey Salads.”

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, ripped the hires as “starkly partisan.” “The decision to create two new senior positions at the Census Bureau and fill them with political operatives is yet another unprecedented attempt by the Trump administration to politicize the 2020 Census,” Maloney said in a statement.

Hit the link for much more. For those blissfully unaware, failed US House candidate Joey Salads was previously best known for a series of racist YouTube stunts and for pissing in his own mouth on camera. In fact, Salads did so many penis-related stunts that a compilation clip was posted on PornHub in order to troll him.
