Oh, you don't nderstand the ego of these people and the HIGH they get when appointed to high level government positions in the DC Inner Belt (unlike most of those in high level positions away from DC, NYC, etc.).
And, for many of them, this is a necessary step to filling out their credentials. Then they go back to the 'private sector positions' with insider knowledge, networking, etc. - an education you just can't buy - or maybe you can after all!!!
See, this is more evidence that we need MORE, MORE, MORE regulations to be enacted!!! Government needs to police these things better because the "private sector" has abandonded all ethics in the interest of self-benefit (I.E. do whatever you need to do to better the competition and/or 'those who regulate'). NOT!
Seriously, WE THE PEOPLE need to use the technologies available to us (BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT STARTS TO REGULATE IT) and initiate the discussion/actions to STOP this type of corruption!!!
