A Schrocking Demotion 

From committee member to Staff Director.

U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.) said yesterday that he has offered a job to Rep. Edward L. Schrock (R-Va.), who announced last summer that he would not seek reelection after a Web site said he had solicited gay sex.

Davis said Schrock has accepted his offer to be the top staff person for one of the subcommittees of the Government Reform Committee, which Davis chairs and Schrock has served on. Schrock will supervise a staff and be responsible for developing policy about government regulation, Davis said.

"Ed was a great member of this committee. We're just delighted that he accepted my invitation," Davis said. Davis added that Schrock "will take that knowledge base as a member. This allows us to continue a good working relationship."

I'm amazed that he can even show his face around the halls of the Capitol. Is this a job to keep him quiet?
