I was attempting to shine a light on it, not defend it. However, in consideration of the impending debate on health insurance policy, I will admit that if the choice were between an ethically challenged medical professional or a government bureaucrat to lead the HHS, I may prefer the former.
As a cabinet official, there will be intense scrutiny on his performance and ethical behavior during his service, so this becomes a question of character. I’m not convinced that he is corrupt, as you imply, based on the evidence presented. I do understand that when there is smoke, there is often fire, so I am reserving judgement until I am able to learn more.
