The Friday Federal Jobs Report

Monica Goodling, Senior Counsel to the Attorney General, has resigned and is still trying to avoid testifying before Congress.

Insiders wonder if she is looking at a position in CorCraft.

Matteo “Matt” Fontana, an Education Department administrator, was put on paid leave, while conflict of interest/corruption charges in the student loan program are under investigation.

He really should have recognized the name of that corporation before he bought the stock.

In the upper Midwest, Rook’s Rant notices the four top administrators in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota have resigned their administrative positions.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune says that Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney, Rachel Paulose, took the job in March 2006, at age 33, after serving briefly under Deputy U.S. Attorney General Paul McNulty.

“Paulose is a native of Minnesota who served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the district from 1999 to 2002. She also worked in private practice for the Dorsey & Whitney law firm from 2002 to 2006. Paulose began her legal career in Minneapolis as a law clerk to James Loken, chief judge of the Eighth U.S. Court of Appeals, from 1997 to 1998.”
