["The Orange County Register analyzed backgrounds and attendance records of 80 recent members of state boards and commissions. Among the findings: Twenty-eight of those 80 appointees had no expertise in the areas they were hired to regulate. Thirty-six of the 80 reported earning incomes from outside employment, such as political consulting or government work, evidence that their board jobs did not demand their full energy. Thirty-three of the 80 got their jobs through political connections. Their ranks include seven former lawmakers, four politicians' spouses and 11 high-ranking aides to ex-governors."
