So what does Facebook, a company run by the young and the liberal, think about new GC Ted Ullyot having some very strong Republican ties (clerked for Scalia, worked for Bush and Gonzo)?
“I think it’s always good to have different voices,” said Facebook spokesman Larry Yu, noting that second-in-command Sheryl Sandburg was chief of staff at the Treasury during the Clinton administration.
The Democrats control Congress … maybe Facebook is placing a bet against Obama being able to win the White House, too.
And just in case you were wondering whether Ullyot was involved in the whole U.S. Attorney firing scandal that took down his former boss Alberto Gonzales, that was a year after he’d left his post as the DOJ’s chief of staff. Ullyot said he still holds “Al” Gonzales in high regard. Yup, he calls him Al.
