There's nothing like having the best of both worlds, especially if you're Allan Filip.
Filip was chair of the Livingston County Republican Party a few years back -- you know, the party that hates government and wants to drown it in a bathtub.
But the ink on the 2010 election results was barely dry before Filip landed a new job -- working for state government. Filip will be director of "external affairs" for Secretary of State Ruth Johnson.
So now Filip, who worked for a party that hates government, has got a job in government.
"I'm happy to receive the appointment," the Livingston Press and Argus quoted Filip as saying.
Of course he is. Most professional government-haters can't wait to land a job feeding at the public trough.
