In Chicago, this is called a 'good resume' 

The Washington Post carried a story yesterday on Chris Mather, the communications director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, who is leaving to work for Chicago's new mayor, Rahm Emanuel. She is, apparently, a lousy boss who promotes young partisans, according to a letter from career USDA employees:

[H]er top aides have faced at least nine federal personnel complaints, according to documents and interviews with current and former USDA employees. The allegations include age and gender discrimination and the promotion of employees supportive of the Democratic Party....

Mather’s management style “is equated more to a dictatorship than that of a relationship built upon mutual trust and respect between employees and their managers,” the current and former employees wrote in their letter...

According to the letter, employees selected for promotion in the past two years “are all under 30 years old and/or come with backgrounds or beliefs that support the policies of the Democratic Party.”

You might consider this a negative, but I think she will fit right in at Richard J. Daley Plaza.
