Debbie Poochigian's political career might not be over
(Fresno Bee © 01/16/2017)
The steps taken by both Poochigian and Armstrong are not unusual, said Thomas Holyoke, a Fresno State political science professor. What politicians normally do when they are not continuing a political career is find a charity to donate to, he said. It's a signal that you are done and you want to be viewed as donating your money to good causes. If retiring politicians want to maintain their influence, he said, they will give money to other politicians, but that wasn't Armstrong's intention. Nor was it in Poochigian's plan. ... 43194.html

Donald Trump gave his son-in-law a government job. Is that a good idea?

(Fresno Bee © 01/14/2017)
The Constitution was established to provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity. Our government should not be used to promote a family's fortunes or agenda. Nepotism violates the spirit of open access and equal opportunity that democratic societies celebrate. Democratic people should be wary of nepotistic political dynasties, whether the family in question is Kennedy, Bush, Clinton or Trump. Andrew Fiala is a professor of philosophy and director of The Ethics Center at Fresno State: ... 81419.html

CSU personnel management contributes to discrimination problems
(Fresno Bee © 01/14/2017)
On Sept. 28, a jury awarded $3.36 million to Beth Burns, the former head coach for the women's basketball team at San Diego State University, in her wrongful termination suit.
