Appropriate for Phil Wilson (Tx Secy of State) To Leave Mid-Term to Work for Luminant?

20 June 2008 at 2:40:09 PM

Excellent editorial by Mitchell Schnurman about how this hire is not only inappropriate but causes people to lose trust in their state government when you see the dance between corporations and big government.

Although Wilson doesn’t oversee utilities as secretary of state, he has been in the governor’s office since 2002, and electric dereg has been front and center much of the time.

His midterm hiring raises credibility questions and makes me wonder whether other politicos are looking ahead to landing their next job.

Luminant wasn’t embarrassed at all, and its news release ballyhooed Wilson’s title.

If that doesn’t strike you as odd, consider the reaction if another public official had accepted a similar offer. Imagine this headline: "Exxon Mobil names President Bush SVP public affairs."
