Article on new ATFE Director
Sounds like they got a loo-loo.
In the old days, the agency just promoted somebody from the liquor side of the agency to hold the job and get his "high three" in before retirement. They usually did little good and little bad. This time it sounds like the Admin. brought in the archtypical political hack. On the other hand, this IS the Boston Globe, and the comments suggest another side to the story.
