Bush's Chief Domestic Policy Adviser: "I Am Never Going To Hire Another Woman Because They Just Get Pregnant and Leave."
Whew! That's just one of the great tidbits in this TNR piece on Karl Zinsmeister, the man who replaced Claude Allen.
(Allen, if you recall, had to step down after he was nailed for shoplifting. At Hetch's. I guess you'd have to hail from DC to know how depressing that is.)
Before replacing Allen, Zinsmeister was editor of American Enterprisethe mag of the conservative think-thank the American Enterprise Institutewhere he was so hated by employees that they basically demanded he be fired or they all quit.
The pregnancy discrimination remark is just one of a laundry list allegations his former employees make against him. Well worth the read.
