This Pigford suit is a tutorial in the fleecing of taxpayers.

Meet Mike Espy: From Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, to Suer of the Department of Agriculture

In the pantheon of civic behavior, ex-politicians leaving DC to become lobbyists to advocate on behalf of private interests against taxpayer interests is right up there among the most undesirable.
What’s even worse? When a former Secretary of Agriculture – who is African-American – leaves his post and now spends his time trolling for and representing litigants suing the USDA citing discrimination against African-Americans during the time he was in charge of the agency.
Why was this sleaze and attorney with zero ag experience ever appointed to the position of Secretary of Agriculture to begin with?
Was he an affirmative action appointment by the Clinton admin?
Heaven forbid our leaders appoint anyone with actual experience within the purview of the agency they will head up.
