Malfeasance of Office = Eubanks' reported conduct = Qualifyibg condition for removal from office by a circuit court of competent jurisdiction.

Haven't we had ENOUGH of this politically incestious behavior? .... An attempt to Strategically place a FORMER LEGISLATOR into a position for which more qualified applicants applied. A PhD trumps a Masters Degree.... DUH....

Why does this one Legislator believe he has the inalienable right to dictate who may be hired to this position in question and to retaliate and seek reprisals against anyone and any state entity that dares defy him?

In Politics, we never know who is sleeping with who... actually and figuratively speaking. Politics should never be injected to deny hard-working people job opportunities for which they have earned the equal right to equally apply and to fairly compete for.
