DOE Panel members get consulting cash from labs they oversee

DOE Panel members get consulting cash from labs they oversee

More of the same people overseeing DOE labs that pay them a fat check.

That violates ethics rules that DOE has been steadily feeding us, does not it?

Anastasio Appointed To LANS And LLNS Boards of Governors

Los Alamos Monitor - September 2, 2014

Norman J. Pattiz, chairman of the Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) and Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS) Boards of Governors, today announced that Dr. Michael Anastasio has been appointed as a University of California Advisory Governor on the LANS and LLNS Boards.

Anastasio also is a member of the LLCs’ Mission Committee. His appointment takes effect immediately.

Congressional investigation to look into the potential for fraud and corruption (ya know that “old" DOE to LLC circular path)!

LANL's "Fuzzy Ewok" (Mike Anastasio) had a lucrative contract with LANL soon after he left his position as the lab's Director but I guess it wasn't enough to keep him supplied in the rich style to which he has grown accustomed.

A new type of corporate nepotism has taken a firm hold at the NNSA labs. The executive management have learned the "Bechtel Way" well.

Or, maybe Mike is the right person for the job. Good luck Mike! Let's give him a chance and see what he can do. Why not be optimistic for a change...

Is Mike in NM or back in CA for this new role?

What???? This so obvious a conflict of interest it is sad. My god man can't you see what is going on? America is turning into a third world nation of just pure bribes, corruption, kickbacks, and payouts. What the hell hap paned to us?

So much for ethics and conflict of interest.

This one is too blatant. What were the LLCs thinking?

Mike was a good Director for both Labs, but this looks like a lapse in judgement. He is on multiple national level lab review panels, and now is getting paid by the operators of the labs. Not his best moment.

"Not his best moment."

Dunno bout that, he's rakin it in, and no-one can stop it. May be his best ever moment yet!

For some, long term reputation is more important than short term riches. In the long term, reputation is what keeps the money coming in and Mike had a good reputation when he left as LANL director. The release this week smells bad no matter how much perfume is sprayed on it.

Another reason DOE / NNSA should end the LLCs.

This lack of ethical behavior is embarrassing.

..Umm, this is why they will never get rid of the LLC's. DOE people can come here and be managers or whatever and make huge, corporate level salaries on the Government dime. Much more than they make at DOE. No, I suspect the gov folks look at the PRESENT lab setup and see an opportunity to get rich without having to do real private sector work. That is probably very appealing and the LLC will never go away for that reason. IMHO

Just like Hugh Hefner baby, some of us win at the game and other lose, and Mike plays to win. It is all the money game, makes the world go round.

It's called kleptocracy - rule by thieves. Admit it, get used to it, accept it.

A few years ago I saw he and his wife? at Trader Joe' s with two shopping carts (boatload) full of wine. He wasn't wearing his pajamas though, just looking scroungy as usual. He obviously hasn't taken the "GQ" or "Vidal" class yet.

Has Mike had his spouse hired out with one of those lucrative no-bid "consultant" contract with the labs, yet?

So many angles to work when you are at the top.

What do you expect from a agency that is irreversibly corrupt?

Too bad Congress is so damn busy discrediting the black guy to see what is going on here and fix it.
