Yosi Sergant update

Even more thorough analysis from Ian David Moss of the famed/"infamous" conference call that lost an NEA staffer his job. (Actually, he was reassigned.)

Plus, at least, Rocco speaks! Turns out the conference call happened the day before he arrived on the job. Still he supports Sergant's disciplining on grounds he acted without authorization. He also vigorously defends, though, the NEA on every count.

While it sucks for Sergant, I can see how Rocco sees a good chance to position himself politically from the outset as someone who will stick to principles yet get distractions out of the way to prevent political firestorms. Kinda like his boss the Prez, no?
