Justice Department Litmus Test

Justice department auditors find that political ideology played a role in the selection of candidates for their presitgious summer intern program.

This is a real shame. They don't have the best interests of the country or justice in mind here - they have the best interests of party and faction.

A president needs to implement his policies. There need to be political appointees to some posts. But career civil servants are different, and summer interns - who are going to be the future career civil servants - should not be partisan pawns.
