According to The Washington Post, the Office of Special Counsel has charged that the department's human resources offices tailored job descriptions for jobs at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency to help a trio of staffers who worked on the president's 2008 campaign.
The report alleges that the staff was warned that their efforts would violate laws designed to keep federal hiring merit-based but pressed ahead anyway. The candidates were reportedly favored by Alan Bersin, the former commissioner of the border protection agency.
Ultimately, the former campaign staffers were not interviewed or hired after officials at the DHS and the Office of Personnel Management stepped in.
Human resources officials are on the front lines when it comes to upholding our merit system and preventing improper political burrowing into the career civil service, Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner said in a statement obtained by the Post.

I wonder how many thousands of Federal Employees get jobs and promotions because the qualifications were “tailored” for them.
Capital Nepitism, this crap will never end.
Her comes the distraction to lay cover for the Cummings revelations. The funny thing is that it is still more unlawful activity just like the tsunami of scandals to come out after Lerner did her setup question deal.
The other question is where were they eventually hired? Did anyone look into that?
Is Special Counselor Carolyn Lerner related to the IRS’s Lois Lerner? Or Hillary’s Communist guru, Michael Lerner? inInquiring minds want to know.
We dont need no steeken' AG Holder to get to the bottom of this.
Ace lawyer Jay Sekulow should subpoena every official document filed to be scrutinized in conjunction w/ possible connections to Obama.
Perjury, forgery, govt fraud, and voter fraud need to be considered. For example: these opportunistic Obama staffers might have may have coached voters to lie on registration forms, and perhaps falsified candidacy papers.

Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.
More of the same from the most corrupt administration in our nation’s history. Expose, expose, expose..... INDICT, INDICT, INDICT!!!
This is the most corrupt administration ever, yet nothing is done about it. Nothing. How are we different than any other third-world country?
“Ultimately, the former campaign staffers were not interviewed or hired after officials at the DHS and the Office of Personnel Management stepped in.”
They are like 50 wads of gum stomped into a shag carpet. Stuck together, impossible to remove. The whole thing must go.
Other than the DHS was the point. The names of these individuals is known and did anyone look to the federal registry to see if they were hired elsewhere?
No.The state capitols are largely corrupted as well as most county governments.Since DC is made up of people that have worked up through the system, it can’t be fixed until we fix our local governments.
thats funny- i thought only George Bush participated in cronyism....
He probably did. Which is why this is all bushs fault.
It is calming to think of every corrupt ass is in prison or deported. It will never happen...unfortunately.
