The World Can't Wait

Relief agency Oxfam's director says their efforts to fight poverty have been "deeply compromised" by the scandal involving World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz.
Mr Wolfowitz is accused of peddling personal influence for his girlfriend by allegedly ordering a huge pay package for Shaha Riza at the bank, and pursuing right-wing US policy goals.
“We’re looking forward to a fair hearing and to show that Mr Wolfowitz acted in complete good faith,” Wolfowitz’s attorney Robert Bennett said. Mr Wolfowitz is keen to defend giving his girlfriend a pay rise.

Yeah why not? Nepotism is the SOP of all Bush appointees.
