The Help America Vote Act of 2002 gives specific qualifications for Election Assistance Commission commissioners. They “shall have experience with or expertise in election administration or the study of elections.” Yesterday the Senate Rules and Administration Committee passed, with no hearings, the nomination of Caroline Hunter to replace Paul DeGregorio as a commissioner. Hunter has voted in the past. That is most of her experience in elections. Most recently Ms. Hunter served as Deputy Director of Public Liaison for the White House. She’s also been a Deputy Counsel to the RNC. Clearly Hunter was not selected for this position based on HAVA mandated experience....

The article about the EAC appointee says "Ms. Hunter assisted the RNC and State Parties in some way with HAVA implementation".
The view that the president has the right to nominate appointees does come from the constitution (Art. 2, Section 2). The senate does not interfere with that except in more egregious situations.
Recently some judges and John Bolton have removed themselves from the nomination by the president when the senate has indicated they will not be approved.
It is unfortunate at this point in our history that we do not have the energy to focus on these less than major appointments.
These are not judges or ambassadors and there is so much that has been screwed up that the senate is inundated with things to fix.
There is Iraq, Iran, torture, habeas corpus, NSA spying on us, FBI spying on us, rendition, endless jailings of accused enemy combatants, loosing billions upon billions of pentagon money, deficits, US Attorneys being fired and replaced with political hacks so the regime will not be prosecuted, and on and on ad nauseum.
The appointment of the political hack to the EAC is a sign that we are so inundated with corruption that we can't deal with all of it right now.
