..."Jones has led the bureau as acting director since 2011"... ***************** ******************** If the guy has been doing the job for two years you don't have questions about his management style from another job, you already know his management style.

The dems must have bribed or promised the republican senator with something to get her to change her vote and allow yet another incompetent Obama 'diversity' pick to be approved. Jones' record here was one of failure and scandal. He'll fit right in with the rest of the Obama crew. What a joke.

He will be ousted when the lawsuits by ATF personnel who make noise about his inevitable political moves get demoted, transferred, and fired start to pile up. Bill G.

Think he will get to the bottom of the Fast and Furious scandal?

Think he will work to control gun violence in Chicago or be more worried about restricting legal gun owners?

So there we are, another sign of what the party of ME is doing to the country. This is not what progressive looks like.

Regardless of politics, this is a poor choice. He couldn't lead here, why should we think he can in D.C.? (can't believe I am with the GOP on this)

Years ago I met w/Mr. Jones on a civil matter and he is person of integrity and ability.
