Concerning the politician and her personal staff

  • Nick Machiavelli


Each politician can have her pick when it comes to personal staff, but there are some rules to consider. Hiring a family member always looks bad and can get you into deep trouble. Yes, loyalty is important, but nepotism has a bad reputation. What is also important is that staff be well tuned, politically, so they can keep their boss out of trouble. If they do so, good for them. If they don’t, it’s probably because the politician picked the wrong staff.
