The Republican Curse of Pork

I keep seeing references in the ongoing CIA/Goss/Cunningham/Shirlington scandal about how Dusty Foggo (now resigned and under investigation) was brought in as a replacement nominee when Goss's first choice got shot down. Today's NYT reminds us how that happened:

The man Mr. Goss first selected to become the C.I.A.'s executive director, Michael V. Kostiw, had to turn down the job when it surfaced in the news media that he had resigned from the agency in the 1980's after being caught shoplifting bacon.

How could I have forgotten that?
