Trump wants Fox to Guard Henhouse.
This is Todd Rokita. He’s a Republican from Indiana, who served four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his time in Washington, Rokita earned a reputation for being an absolutely terrible boss.
Bad enough for several former staffers to do the unthinkable: criticize their boss to reporters. The resulting news story tells the world what a shit this guy is.
Furthermore, during his four terms in Congress, Rokita cast more that eight anti-Amtrak votes, including four that would have eliminated federal funding for the long-distance trains.
Notwithstanding that—or perhaps because of it—President Donald Trump has nominated Todd Rokita to serve on the Amtrak Board of Directors.
