New U.S. Amb. to Belgium Announced
WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, President Obama announced his intent to nominate Denise Bauer to the post of Ambassador to Belgium, Department of State. The announcement comes only weeks after the current ambassador to Belgium, Howard Gutman, was accused of soliciting underage prostitutes.

As the New York Post reported recently:
Thank you for your servicing Mr. Ambassador.
A State Department whistleblower has accused high-ranking staff of a massive coverup -- including keeping a lid on findings that members of then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's security detail and the Belgian ambassador solicited prostitutes.
Well at least no one has been killed...yet.
A chief investigator for the agency's inspector general wrote a memo outlining eight cases that were derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clinton's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.
Foggier than usual in Foggy Bottom.

#2  Soon to be immortalized as the next Bhengazi victim, do they place the Ambassadors as sacrificial victims? (I'd be damned leery)

As was Bhenghazi, go (Reading from note)Denise Bauer and sin no more.

#3  Denise Bauer (Belgium ambo) and James “Wally” Brewster (Dominican Republic)--both Champ's bundlers. Two dozen of Obama’s bundlers from his 2008 presidential run were awarded ambassadorships. The qualification for being an ambo is to have helped (money and influence) get Obama elected.
