Wolfowitz Keeps on Giving

His lack of post-war Iraq planning was bad enough...

Austin Bay:

Paul Wolfowitz has made economic reform and anti-corruption pillars of his stint at the World Bank. Good for him, because corruption saps the economic and political vitality of far too many developing nations.

Often corruption in the Third World amounts to doing favors for family members (hello Kofi Annan), clan, and tribe.

Wolfowitz has made World Bank loans contingent on reducing corruption and encouraging accountability.

However…but…get a load of this.

And talk about self defeat.

Wolfowitz got involved in a promotion and pay issue with his girlfriend. HIs girlfriend works at the World Bank. And apparently on his staff.
