More trouble for Andrew Puzder: The Secretary of Labor nominee hired an undocumented worker—an inconvenient truth for a president who is staunchly against illegal immigration. Puzder supposedly told the Trump team about this “flag”.
“Based upon what I’ve learned,” [Senator] Alexander said in a statement, “since Mr. Puzder reported his mistake and voluntarily corrected it, I do not believe that this should disqualify him from being a Cabinet secretary.”
Such logic seems…flawed. Simply because someone reported a mistake and “voluntarily corrected it” that means they should be absolved of all moral and political backlash?
