Profiles in cowardice.

She can do the right thing, probably get fires by Trump, but she will be employable after Jan 20th. Or she can remain Trump's loyal stooge , stay employed until Jan 20th, then be shit out of luck.,

The article IS correct that for the moment, this Bitch is fucked no matter what she chooses. *For the moment*. But she could have easily chosen to save whatever reputation she had for being a professional of integrity and moral character, and wait-out the transition process like everyone else in the Country- salvaging whatever career choices she might have in the future. By choosing the Un-Democratic, frankly Pussy-assed choice, she is well and truly Fucked forever. I see a long and torturous future asking customers, "Would you like fries with that order sir?"

NO. Do not let her send out fluff pieces that try to paint her as being in a sympathetic situation. She’s a corrupt PIG who is risking the lives of thousands of Americans and our national security because she is refusing to do her job because she’s afraid of Trump. She’s a PIG who should be run out of DC by an angry mob on January 20th.

The self-inflicted agony of Emily Murphy

Trump’s head of the General Services Administration is in the throes of a faux dilemma.

November 18, 2020 at 2:33 p.m. EST

Emily Murphy, the administrator of the General Services Administration, is having a hard month. It would engender more sympathy if she were not bringing it on herself.

Murphy’s role during the presidential transition was little known before Election Day, but it has come into focus since then. It is her job to produce the “ascertainment” of the election, which is a fancy way of saying who is the “apparent successful candidate” in the general election. At that point, the president-elect (if not the incumbent) can access executive branch agencies and be briefed by intelligence officials.

On the Saturday after Election Day, the Associated Press and the four major networks called the presidential race for Joe Biden. Nonetheless, 36 hours later Murphy had not ascertained the result. GSA spokesperson Pamela Pennington emailed The Washington Post to say, “An ascertainment has not yet been made, and its Administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law.”

That was a weekend, so perhaps one could forgive Murphy for not moving immediately. Ten days later, however, she has still not ascertained the results. According to CNN’s Kristen Holmes and Jeremy Herb, the pressure is starting to get to her: “Emily Murphy is struggling with the weight of the presidential election being dropped on her shoulders, feeling like she’s been put in a no-win situation, according to people who have spoken to her recently.”

At first glance one can sympathize with Murphy’s predicament. It was a close election in a highly polarized moment, and ordinary Americans seem awfully eager to scold people on social media without doing their due diligence. Murphy clearly did anticipate the perils of a close election, consulting with her predecessors to see how controversies were handled in the past. Most of Murphy’s friends and colleagues who talked to CNN attempted to paint her in a positive light, describing her as “a technocrat and policy wonk.”

When we get to Murphy’s agonizing decision, however, CNN’s report raises a whole bunch of red flags: “It’s not clear what specific actions Murphy is waiting on before granting ascertainment. Sources tell CNN she is basing her decision on what she sees as the precedent set by the 2000 election, where there was not a clear winner for more than a month.”

The hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts has stared at that last sentence for a while now, and has come to the conclusion that it makes zero sense. Because let’s be clear: There is no comparison between 2000 and 2020.

In the 2000 contest between Al Gore and George W. Bush, the contest hinged on the results of a single state. The margin between the two candidates in Florida was roughly 500 votes, a margin that a recount could have altered. As time passed and recounts proceeded, the margin between Bush and Gore narrowed. And the litigation between Gore and Bush was a legitimately seesaw affair, with the Florida Supreme Court siding with Gore and the U.S. Supreme Court eventually siding with Bush.

In 2020, Joe Biden is the clear winner. For Trump to win he would need to overturn the results not of one state, but three. The margin between the two candidates in those states is in the tens of thousands; no recount has ever overturned a U.S. election result in which the margin was that large. As time has passed, Biden’s lead in every swing state except Arizona has widened considerably. And as for the ongoing litigation, Trump’s campaign has won only one of the dozens of cases it has brought and subsequently lost that case on appeal. Rudy Giuliani has been put in charge, which is all you need to know.

by Anonymousreply 1111/18/2020

cnt'd

The better comparison to 2020 is 2016. Trump won a couple of states by a narrow margin, and there was some push for recounts, but the outcome was not really in doubt after Election Day. The only difference between 2016 and 2020 is that the losing candidate in 2016 acted like a mature grown-up.

To use the language of ascertainment, in 2020 Biden is the apparent successful candidate and it’s not close. If Murphy is looking for guidance about how to handle a mercurial boss who does not want to admit defeat, might I suggest this clip from “Michael Clayton":

I want to take Murphy at her word. In my experience folks who work in government, whether as political appointees or civil service employees, try to do the right thing. I want to take Murphy’s word when she said in her 2017 confirmation hearing that, “I am not here to garner headlines or make a name for myself. … My goal is to do my part in making the federal government more efficient, effective and responsive to the American people,” and not cynically presume she’s seeking a private-sector parachute.

Each day Murphy abstains from her responsibilities, however, it becomes harder to see her in that light. Without her ascertainment, Trump can continue to block Biden’s landing teams from engaging with their departments, deny Biden access to intelligence briefings that would allow a seamless transfer of power, and sabotage any effort to bring an end to the pandemic.

Right now, without any apparent logic, Murphy is guaranteeing to make the federal government less efficient, less effective and much less responsive to the American people. I feel her pain. But she seems oddly unaware that it is self-inflicted.

Is Trump going to pardon her for breaking the law? Why should he? He doesn’t give a shit about her. She’s nobody to him.

He isn’t going to give her a job. Look at her. He only likes skinny, good looking women. If she looked like Hope Hicks and was willing to blow him every day, maybe. He has no use for a woman that looks like her.

Why don’t those Trumpers ever learn, he throws everyone under the bus? He’d throw his own kids under the bus to save himself. He doesn’t even know who she is.

Why ruin yourself in your chosen field, for a boss that’s on his way out the door? If she gets charged with anything, she loss her security clearance. There goes her ability to work in Washington. She knows better than any person in America that he lost. She’s doing all this for absolutely nothing.

It sounds like she's in one of those situations where a leader has to set the precedent, not rely on it.

That's hard, but that can happen. You can't entertain that possibility and see yourself acting, don't take the job. Or resign. But incapacity is not an option.

She seems unable to make a decision. She should step down, be replaced, or act. Sometimes you have to test the waters to set the precedent.

Congress establishes much of this by statute, even though is a dotted line to the executive branch. Congress pass a framework for chicken little to follow., although that will go nowhere because of Moscow Mitch.

by Anonymousreply 4511/21/2020

The law should be more specific and state that ascertainment occurs when sufficient states with enough electoral votes for the apparent winner have certified their results. Then it wouldn’t require a bureaucrat’s decision.

R46, that is exactly what the Trump administration, through Emily Murphy, is arguing. It's a standard that would build maximum delay into the transition, with endless challenges to certifications, etc. The transition is the sort of thing that needs to be done as quickly as possible.

I agree; she'll land at the Cato Institute or some place like that. There's a reason she's holding out - there's a reward for her (not just a box of donuts) the longer she fucks with/undermines the Biden administration. Moreover, once this is over, she'll be all over right wing media crying about how she was targeted, harassed, harangued by the angry left.
