Reid Finds Ex-Aide Jaczko a New Gig

It seems Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has found another role for an oft-criticized former aide.

Without much fanfare, the Nevada Democrat appointed Gregory B. Jaczko to a post on a Congressional panel overseeing the National Nuclear Security Administration. The announcement appeared in the April 17  edition of the Congressional Record. Reid got to tap Jaczko for the post all on his own, which is probably a good thing. Few figures have drawn as much Republican criticism as the former Nuclear Regulatory Commission chairman.

Other members of the NRC said Jaczko was a belligerent manager and something of a bully. He ultimately tendered his resignation, contingent on confirmation of a successor. That person, Allison Macfarlane, shares Jaczko and Reid’s opposition to storing nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, Nev. She won confirmation last year.

“Greg Jaczko is an experienced leader on science and nuclear security issues and his expertise will be invaluable to the Commission’s work,” Reid said. “As Chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Jaczko helped push for increased safety and security measures to protect our nation’s nuclear plants and provided leadership during the Fukushima nuclear crisis.”

It’s no surprise that Reid would back Jackzo for a new job. He previously used every tool in the box, including a blanket hold on President George W. Bush’s nominees, to get Jaczko on the NRC in the first place.

    Pull the comb very slowly and punctiliously through the head of hair. While removing head lice might seem as if a long, difficult task, just remember it will not have to be very. Dry it well and comb your hair with the brush. Lice Removal, 100 Church Street Decatur, GA 30031 (770)-645-4548

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
