The Secretary of Labor, Marty Walsh, is resigning to take a job with the NHL Players Union. I can see why representing pro athletes would be more appealing than serving in Joe Biden’s Cabinet.
What’s alarming is who Biden is favoring as the presumptive nominee to replace him: Julie Su, who was Gavin Newsom’s own Labor Secretary in California. This is called failing up.
I am leading the opposition to Su’s potential nomination on Capitol Hill. I’ve just sent Biden a letter signed by other California Members of Congress with a simple message: Su’s tenure in the Newsom Administration was a disaster.
As California Labor Secretary, she was at the center of Newsom’s corruption and incompetence. For instance, she let $30 billion go out the door in fraudulent payments to criminals – the largest fraud of taxpayer dollars in history. And she supported and enforced Newsom’s vile AB 5 law.
There is no doubt that Newsom, who just returned from DC, is working behind the scenes to install Su. This would give him a greater foothold in Washington and play into his absurd “model for the nation” pitch as he prepares to fail up himself.
