Last time I checked, any felony conviction on your record - including a DWI - means you can forget getting even a SECRET clearance for US Government work.
I guess the Government discriminates against black people.
That's what I was thinking... Friends who would know say even a misdemeanor can be reason to deny a clearance. A felony? Forget it, don't even waste your time.
So, yet another case of big government and the ruling elite sticking it in our faces and saying do as we say, not as we do.
You can’t even get clearance to be a teacher in my state. We co-chair an after-school program in L.A. and I was not surprised how much information you have to provide just to be employed as an after-school instructor. You might as well join the CIA with the amount of paperwork you have to sign.
