World Bank Ethics Committee Releases Documents On Former Mitch McConnell Aide Robin Cleveland

The World Bank Ethics Committee has released documents that include opinions blasting Paul Wolfowitz for the outlandish salary arranged for Robin Cleveland, the former aide to Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was appointed to a position she was wholly unqualified for.

Page 48: On the terms of Robin Cleveland and Kevin Kellems’ contracts, on Shaha Riza’s salary increase, and on the terms of Karl Jackson’s original contract, we reiterate our contention that Paul Wolfowitz acted with reckless disregard for his fiduciary duties to the Bank, basic principles of HR management, and the reputation of the Bank, by providing outlandish compensation packages to the people closest to him.

Now it also appears the former McConnell aide was complicit in arranging a transfer from a job at the State Department for Paul Wolfowitz’s girlfriend, a British citizen, who received a higher salary than Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice at over $170,000 a year:

Page 97:

Dear Ms. Cleveland:

I am writing to request the transfer of the secondment of Ms. Shaha Riza, British citizen, employee of the Bank, from the
Bureau of Near Eastem Affairs at the US Department of State to the Foundation for the Future which she was in charge
of establishing.
