The Ghosts of Monica Goodling, Pat Robertson and Regent "University" School Of Law

Poor Monica, she was just making up for another Monica's godless ways!

(From Think Progress)

In October 2006, Leslie Hagen, who was working as the liaison between the Justice Department and the U.S. attorneys’ committee on Native American issues, was informed that despite her “outstanding” job performance reviews, her contract would not be renewed. In April 2008, NPR reported that the Justice Department was investigating whether Hagen was fired after a rumor reached former Justice Department official Monica Goodling that she was a lesbian.
As of last Monday, Ms. Hagen has been reinstated. There is one difference: she will no longer be subject to an annual review. Her job is considered permanent. However the outcome, "“nobody official from the department ever apologized to her for what happened” and she still owes thousands of dollars in attorney fees that the Bush Justice Department refused to pay.

The most telling question Goodling posed to interviewees:"What is it about George W. Bush that makes you want to serve him?"

Those poor people! What were they expected to answer? The truth: "Absolutely nothing. I just want a goddamed job!"

And Goodling used Google to search for clues about the applicants. What words did she include in the searches? Take a look: Gore...Republican...Democrat...Charge...Accuse...Criticize...Iran-Contra...Clinton...Fraud...Racist... Investigate...Bankrupt...Layoff...Downsize...Enron...Sex...Arrest...Controversy...Gay...Homosexual...Gun...Firearm

(Huffington Post, Max Blumnethal, 2007):
Goodling's involvement in Attorneygate is not the only aspect of her role in the Bush administration that bears examination. Her membership in a cadre of 150 graduates of Pat Robertson's Regent University currently serving in the administration is another, equally revealing component of the White House's political program.

(from Pensito Review, Jon Ponder, 7-29-08)

Goodling, a graduate of a college operated by televangelist Pat Robertson, was also found to have nixed the hiring of a terrorism expert because his wife was a Democrat.

Dumb Regent University neocons!
