After working as a federal prosecutor in Brooklyn, N.Y., for two years, [Julie Myers] held a variety of jobs over the past four years at the White House and at the departments of Commerce, Justice and Treasury, though none involved managing a large bureaucracy. Myers worked briefly as chief of staff to Michael Chertoff when he led the Justice Department's criminal division before he became Homeland Security secretary.And guess what? She’s probably going to be appointed, because Liebertwat’s the ranking Dem on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and he thought Brownie had “particularly useful experience” and was “glad” he had been nominated.
Myers also was an associate under independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr for about 16 months and has most recently served as a special assistant to President Bush handling personnel issues.
Her uncle is Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, the departing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. She married Chertoff's current chief of staff, John F. Wood, on Saturday.
With Dems like these, who needs Republicans?
