Sims tries to have it both ways

Ron Sims, the ethically challenged former King County, Washington Executive and nominee for the #2 spot in the Department of Housing and Urban Development still appears likely to win confirmation to his spot. However, that hasn't stopped some Senators from "roughing up" Sims on his way.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La. … blasted Sims for telling him one day that he couldn't comment on a public-record lawsuit against King County but the next day answering a video-camera carrying reporter's questions about the suit.

You can't have it both way. Either you can or can't comment on a lawsuit. Changing your mind depending on who is asking the question is dishonesty to the highest degree.

Elections have consequences and Obama can appoint who he pleases, but really, is this the best he can do?
