Bond Relative under “black” cloud?

From debbieschlussel.com:

Ever since Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Chieftess Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” praised and awarded an employee’s Blackface costume, I’ve been hearing from top ICE officials on the Seventh Floor (where Myers and top ICE honchose have their offices) of the Chester A. Arthur Building (current ICE headquarters) that Myers has been asked by the Bush Administration to step down. And since then, I’ve posted that rumor and news that Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) put a hold on the Myers nomination.

But what is bigger news is that Senator Kit Bond (R-Missouri) does have backbone. He is the second cousin of Mr. Julie Myers, John Wood a/k/a John Myers-Wood-Myers and was a big booster of his to become U.S. Attorney in Kansas City. But here’s what he has to say on Myers:

Even some of those expected to defend Julie Myers seemed shaky.

“The way things are going, we may not ever vote on her nomination,” Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo., who is a second cousin of Myers’ husband, said Friday. “Our nation’s immigration enforcement agency needs non-controversial leadership. That would be best served by going in a different direction with this nomination.”

Bond’s reaction was a surprise, said ICE spokeswoman Kelly Nantel, and Myers is trying to speak with the senator about it.

I take it he will not be carving Turkey on Thursday with that side of the family. Read more…
