John Conyers wants Haiti relief official Rajiv Shah demoted for not having enough minority staffers
According to The Hill, corrupt Democrat Rep. John Conyers from Michigan has called on Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to demote the official Rajiv Shah who is coordinating Haiti relief efforts for not having enough minority staffers.
The House Judiciary Committee Chairman sent a letter to Clinton on Thursday after Rajiv Shah, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, showed up at a meeting with the 42-member Congressional Black Caucus without any African American staffers in tow.
“I was alarmed and chagrined to learn that none of the approximately dozen staff he brought with him were African American,” Conyers wrote in the letter. “This is so serious an error in judgment that it warrants his immediate demotion to a subordinate position at AID.”
Conyers is set to lead a congressional delegation to Haiti on Friday, his first visit to the island country since a massive earthquake destroyed much of the impoverished nation.
The State Department did not comment on the letter when contacted for reaction.
