Bite My Head Off

The Governor wrote a letter to Department of Interior Sec. Dirk Kempthorne asking for the removal of current Federal Ombudsman Jim Benedetto's "head" in the CNMI. However, Kempthorne is renewing Benedetto to remain as the Ombudsman in the Commonwealth for another three years.

The renewal seems to make Benedetto stay longer than the current governor, whose term is up for two more years.

Hmmm...I wonder now, if the local government also had asked for Cohen's head?

They've been pretty good staving off federal legislation for the last 15 years. Who knows, maybe there is a method to the madness? Maybe this is part of some elaborate plan? So far the score is something like CNMI-4, Feds-1.

The problem with Ben is he see goblins everywhere. He is paranoid of the mess by the monster he experimented.

Wake up! The party is over..

If anyone up in the Governor's office had a brain in their head, they wouldn't need to ask for Benedetto's

Isn't this like Al Capone asking for Elliot Ness to be fired?

update: fed officer shared that the more the local government does this, the more he's going to be pinned down by the feds.

...are you sure it wasn't worded wrong in the story? the way i hear it, it sounded like he was asking benedetto for head.

jim, would you please clarify?

pin me down said...

Head, who said head?!

Congrats, HP, on #1200. Sorry I missed it. The Beav was off-island until 0100.

Congrats, Jim, on another three years.

After five years you're now vested, but there's always that "high three" to consider.
