Another Bust for Commerce?

Former Washington Gov. Gary Locke is reputed to be up for the Commerce Secretary appointment.  But Michelle Malkin tells us that skeletons abound in the former governor’s closet.

Explains Malkin:

I covered Gary Locke when I worked at the Seattle Times. I dealt with his campaign and gubernatorial staffs. “Strait-laced” is not the adjective I’d use for my dealings with him and his people.

In response to my columns pressing Locke on his close ties to campaign finance crook John Huang, the governor’s office first stonewalled. His standard Democrat smokescreen? Play the race card and play the victim.

This could be fun.  Maybe the president is going for a record number of withdrawals for a Cabinet position.
