More Cronyism At The White House

On the heels of the Michael "Brownie" Brown debacle, comes the nomination of Julie Myers to head the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which is a part of the Department of Homeland Security. Who is Julie Myers?
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.

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.
