New DEA head named

Breaking news…

Administration sources confirmed today that President Obama has chosen a successor to Michele Leonhart as head of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Leonhart was a holdover from the Bush administration and there has been significant speculation regarding the future of the leadership of this controversial agency, particularly given the tension between raids of medical cannabis dispensaries and statements made by Attorney General Eric Holder.
While the new nominee is not currently working in law enforcement, he has had extensive direct experience with the DEA and with federal prosecutors. According to a Justice Department spokesperson, “There’s nobody better qualified to understand the historic mission of the DEA than Thomas B. Kin Chong. The DEA has been an integral part of his entire career.”
When reached for comment this morning, Thomas B. Kin Chong (or Tommy, as he likes to be called) said, “Hey, man, don’t you know what time it is? That’s not cool, man. Why are you always calling me on April 1?”

More on this breaking story as it develops.
