No More Hot Libyan Action For Wolfie

Suddenly his job means more to him than his girlfirend.

[Wolfowitz] accused the bank’s ethics committee of forcing him to oversee the raise for his longtime companion, Shaha Riza, as compensation for her transfer to a different job. The ethics panel was afraid to confront her, Wolfowitz said, because its members knew she was “extremely angry and upset.”


Wolfowitz effectively blamed Riza for his predicament as well, saying that her “intractable position” in demanding a salary increase as compensation for her career disruption forced him to grant one to pre-empt a lawsuit.


“Everyone acknowledges that Ms. Riza was extremely angry and upset about being required to take an external placement to resolve a problem that was not of her making,” Wolfowitz wrote, portraying the raise as a “settlement of claims.”


But the investigating committee found that Riza had no legitimate grievance meriting a settlement.

  1. The thing that really gets me is how the repubs always decry “victim mentality” and how one should take responsibility – but only to discredit a democrat.
    Yet when one of their own gets caught in a situation (even one like this that smells to high heaven on the face of it and any reasonable person would have thought conflict-of-intrest before the fact), the response is a long whine of why I was the victim.
    NOTE TO DEMOCRATS: prepare a video of prominent republicans whining on how they are the victim. You’ve got a long list of recent dismissals to work with.

  2. I love how he’s throwing her under the bus…”she was such a vicious bitch you made me give her a massive raise…and a bonus!” That’s got to warm the old home life up.
