I could be missing something, but by what statutory authority did the President purport to appoint Cuccinelli as Acting Director of USCIS? He doesn't meet any of the criteria under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998:

This is such an incredible abuse of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act process, I wonder if any congressional Republican (besides maybe Rep. @justinamash) will call out the administration for doing so.

This is how they’re purporting to get around the Federal Vacancies Reform Act:

I'd add that this is even more problematic than it at first appears because the creation of this new position is being done by an acting secretary who himself is only in his position because the Trump administration pushed out people ahead of him in the DHS line of succession.

1. I am familiar with this guy from Virginia politics. He makes Ben Carson seem sane

A very dangerous man.

2. My moniker for him was set many years ago

Ken Coochycrazy

No one else was apparently willing to give him a job, and if recognized panhandling in the streets of Richmond, wouldn't have been good for the Republican Party's image (not that much of anyone else is these days, either).

3. A simple google will tell you all you need to know about this loser. Unfortunately, he was our AG in

Virginia for a while. He fits right in with the Teapubs. I have no idea how much money he cost the Commonwealth with his frivolous lawsuits, but it was a lot. Glad the voters saw through him and gave him the boot. Older version of Matt Gaetz IMO.
