Grisham's law comes to the bureaucracy
In economics, Gresham's law is a monetary principle stating that "bad money drives out good". For example, if there are two forms of commodity money in circulation, which are accepted by law as having similar face value, the more valuable commodity will gradually disappear from circulation.
We are now seeing the same thing happen in the government bureaucracy. Those people who are nonpartisan, long-term employees of the government that make the system work by doing their jobs every day are now being politicized. Those who would support the rule of law and stand up to the illegal demands of *any* administration are being forced to make a choice...stay and undertake illegal acts or resign and maintain their integrity. In either case, the bureaucracy is worse off. The good leave and are replaced by the bad; the bad remain to behave even worse. We saw this with so many resignations of people who would not, could not stay to support immoral and illegal acts, from Shaub to Mattis and so many others. Grisham's law.
Latest edition: two bureaucrats at the OMB who, rather than illegal hold up payments to Ukraine that were required by law, resigned. Sandy, whose job it was to sign off on withholding the aid, was replaced with a trump political operative...Michael Duffey who was head of the gop in wisconsin.
