Bush Justice Department steers bonuses to the Christianist attorneys
At the end of a very long story about how the Bush administration has remade the Department of Justice, we get this extremely buried lead.
It looks like the loyal Bushes are giving Christianists bonuses just because they're Christianists. Hey, doing well by doing good, eh?
Several career lawyers said that some political appointees favored the religious-oriented employees, intervening to steer $1,000 to $4,000 annual merit bonuses to them.
Well, of course, that's only a few thousand, right?
Surely a trivial amount, especially for a Republican.
And those Christianist vows of poverty can really sting...
