For good reasons, liars are neither trusted nor admired. Even children reject and resent people who manipulate and deceive others. A society that doesn’t value honesty quickly devolves into chaos. That’s why we choose leaders from the people in our neighborhoods, clubs, councils, religious institutions, and civic organizations that have demonstrated that they can be trusted.
So there is no reason to support, admire, trust or permit a person with a history of lying, cheating and theft to be given the opportunity to continue his demonstrated disregard for his fellow citizens. Steve Mnuchin is a thief and a cheat. He has enriched himself by robbing others using a variety of scams. He is unfit and unacceptable for the office of the Attorney General of the United States of America.

NOMINEE MISLED SENATE ON FORECLOSURES
President Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. treasury secretary was untruthful with the Senate during the confirmation process, documents uncovered by The Dispatch show.
Steve Mnuchin, former chairman and chief executive officer of OneWest Bank, known for its aggressive foreclosure practices, flatly denied in testimony before the Senate Finance Committee that OneWest used “robo-signing” on mortgage documents.
But records show the bank utilized the questionable practice in Ohio.
“The guy is just lying. There’s no other way to say it,” said Bill Faith, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio.
