Bureaucrats Always Fail Upwards

Bureaucrats do not normally get punished when they make horrible decisions that adversely affect other people's lives.  Instead they get promoted.

Joe Biden has nominated transgender Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine (born Richard Levine) for assistant secretary of health.

This is the same Rachel Levine that as Pennsylvania Health Secretary required nursing homes to take in COVID patients.

That decision had consequences -  68% of all Covid Deaths in PA were in nursing homes

One resident of a nursing home was however not affected by that edict - Rachel Levine's mother. 

The Pennsylvania Health Secretary, while making that edict that brought death to thousands in nursing homes, made sure to remove mom from the danger that edict would cause.  Certainly casts a shadow of knowing culpability in regards to that decision, now doesn't it?

One would think such an obviously idiotic decision  with such disastrous results (also implemented in NY, NJ, MA, and our very own Michigan - with similar deadly results) would disqualify one from ever holding such a post of trust in regards to public health. 

Indeed, in a sane world it would likely call for criminal charges of gross criminal negligence causing death or reckless indifference causing death. But no, she's getting to go to Washington and impose more of her ill-conceived edicts on the entire nation.
