Wolfowitz and Hypocrites

WASHINGTON, May 17 —

Paul D. Wolfowitz, ending a furor over favoritism that blew up into a global fight over American leadership, announced his resignation as president of the World Bank Thursday evening after the bank’s board accepted his claim that his mistakes at the bank were made in good faith.

The decision came four days after a special investigative committee of the bank concluded that he had violated his contract by breaking ethical and governing rules in arranging the generous pay and promotion package for Shaha Ali Riza, his companion, in 2005.

While I don't condone anyone practicing favoritism , is there any among us who has not favored someone we really care about over someone we may not care so much about?
The World Bank forcing the resignation of Wolfowitz is simply more hypocrisy in an organization that is founded on hypocrisy and lies.
