Yep ... you knew it was going to happen. Newly minted Senator Carte "Manchin's Boy" Goodwin has picked up Manchin's recycled niece Mary Josephine Thompson to work in his office to get everything ready for her uncle's November entry. Rob Alsop, an attorney with Jackson & Kelly, is leaving his job in Charleston to become Goodwin's Senate Chief of Staff. Alsop also served in Manchin's Administration before returning to practice law. Thompson was director of constituent services in the governor's office before her uncle appointed her as director of community development. She received a $6000 pay raise bringing her pay to nearly $88,000 a year. After six months of blow ups, mistakes, harassment and creating an office that hated her, she ran back to the governor's office as a "top aide" but maintained her title as director of community development. Now Thompson will have to resign her 2 state government jobs in order to move over as Goodwin's office director/Manchin's future Senate chief of staff. It does payoff being the governor's niece!

When he gets his bunch in Washington, it will look like the Beverly Hillbillys came to town. Even a fossil like Ken Hechler looks better than this dude. Wonder if he and Gayle will ride their Harleys to Washington?
