She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding.

Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York.

Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars
.

And the experience she brings to the table?

Quote:
“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”


There is this as well.

Quote:
From 2011 through January, she also helped run the Eric Trump Foundation, a charity that's now under investigation by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

And beyond the non-existant law degree what education does she bring to the table?

Quote:
After growing up in Connecticut, Patton went south for college and graduated from the University of Miami with a B.A. in English Literature and Psychology.

Trump has obviously given up even pretending to care about good governance. The sheer graft, nepotism and utter stupidity of this administration keeps managing to surpass itself

She went to the U???? Yeah, hell of a school -- if you want to play in the NFL. Otherwise, it's a private school for rich kids who can't get into other schools.

Wish I could say I'm shocked by this, but pretty much par for the course.

Actually, Patton will probably have to answer to HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

The choice of the people to head certain departments was cynically based on the basis of how much those folks brought to the table in terms of wanting to devolve and "deconstruct" those departments. In a sense, these folks are human wrecking balls to the departments they serve.

This is part of Steve Bannon's strategy to "deconstruct the administrative state", which clicks with the Dominionist goal to devolve the government in order to re-evolve it into a theocratic state.

All of this could have been avoided, if only Clinton hadn't killed all of those people in her Pizza Hut sex chamber.
