Latest Bush nominee has racist skeleton in closet

"Henrietta Holsman Fore, the Bush White House’s nominee to be Under-Secretary of State for Management, was forced to resign from the Wellesley College Board of Trustees for saying that blacks preferred pushing drugs to working in a factory," writes The Buzz. "Even when she tried apologizing for the comments in a letter to the college newspaper, Holsman reiterated her statement that she had trouble keeping black assembly-line workers from going 'back to the street to earn more money' selling drugs. Holsman is appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today for her confirmation hearing. (CapitolBuzz)
