Wolfowitz Pays Staffer $194K Tax Free to Fuck Him

Paul Wolfowitz, architect of the Iraq War and a general asshole, has finally got his due. The misdeed is that he used his powers at World Bank to give his girlfriend a huge raise to work for a Bush administration organization for a salary of $194K tax free, which makes me think we all ought to work for World Bank, as it is pretty hard to get a private sector salary that rivals those tax free ones. Jeezum Crow.

But the real reason that the Wolf is on his way out is that he staffed his office with aggressive political bozos from the White House and DOD who make $250K tax free and berate the staff endlessly. This is a Gonzo redux, the same inputs and the same problem: unqualified cronies being assholes.
I have a source at World Bank who reports to the Wolf and she says he is the most arrogant, rude, horrible person she has ever met. Nice guy to appoint to a diplomacy post! Go Bush!
