Sen. Bond Relative’s Nomination is “Toast”

“Ice Princess” Julie Myers

For those of you not keeping score, Ms. Myers is the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and is the second cousin of Sen. Bond by marriage. Sen. Bond was a big booster of her husband John Wood to become U.S. Attorney in Kansas City.

Myers got into a bit of controversey last Halloween when she awarded and praised a white employee’s black face costume. Our junior Senator Claire McCaskill has put a hold on her nomination. At first, Bond unflinchingly threw his in law under the bus when this matter started getting national attention, but after Thanksgiving, he had a change of heart.

And there have been a ton of Google searches to this site, today, on the topic, too. I’ve been watching this closely.

Here’s the scoop: I’m 95% certain that The ICE Princess is toast.

Because she is serving a recess appointment, Myers must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate by the end of the year. I’ve contacted the Clerk of the U.S. Senate, and they have no further votes scheduled for the full Senate, today. Read more…
