    Be curious to know who that responsibility fell on. (And wise to take them off the list for future efforts....)
    Agreed. Because I'd have a very hard time believing any of this was a surprise to them. They knew who he was.

    The person/people you were referring to. Whoever recommended the appointment.

    Was thinking more along the lines of ineptness or laziness in the vetting process. But you make a reasonable point regarding the individual who actually (initially) submitted the guy's name for consideration. Don't know how that process works but it really wasn't doing anyone any favors.

    It was effectively a time-bomb waiting to go off. In today's google world those audio recordings were bound to get discovered sometime.

    Yeah, that's what I mean. This was so much a part of who the guy publicly is that there's no way those responsible for appointing him didn't know. If you knew the guys name, you knew this side of him. No way you couldn't. So their only defense for not knowing would be if they were just appointing people randomly. Like opening a phone book and pointing at a name. Always possible, I guess.
