Affirmative action foe appointed to Civil Rights panel.

This is par for the course for the Bush Administration...appoint a person who wants to destroy the particular government office he/she is appointed to so that conservatives can say "See? Government doesn't work...we should privatize this or do away with it" Remember John Bolton?~Uncle Salty

From Think Progress:

U.S. Commission on Civil Rights appointed Michigan state Rep. Leon Drolet (R), who successfully led efforts to ban affirmative action in the state, to head the state’s advisory committee on civil rights. In a statement, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights denounced the appointment:

“In a state with such a rich history of civil rights and union activism, it is most disappointing that the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights chose a representative with such a shallow civil rights resume. By selecting a candidate with a one-issue civil rights platform at odds with every established civil rights organization, the U.S. Commission has all but erased its credibility as a proponent for civil rights.”
