Governor Mitt Romney "Appoints"


I do not know much about Governor Mitt Romney's appointments. I do know he has tried to take away nepotism, and cronyism, and favors Merit Based appointment. If Boston Democrats were to spend 1/2 a day in Chicago, they would hear about all the jobs for votes programs here in Illinois, and they might not hate their Republican Governor so much.


Anyways, I hear that some conservatives complain about Romney's appointments, but they don't seem to back up their conclusions with much data. Here is a lot of data. Anyone have any time to go through it? Tell me what you learn if you do. I'll add it right here: __________________________
