Bush Catholic On the Block

 |  NCR Today

Scott Bloch was one of those Bush Administration appointees who was given a relatively unimportant but high-paying job partly in return for the work he did reaching out to conservative Catholics on Bush’s behalf.

Nonetheless, he managed to do a fair amount of damage, going out of his way to push an ideological agenda that had little to do with his job description.

Here’s how NCR covered him at the time.

Now he’s trying to stay out of jail.
