Following up on a post from a few weeks ago, it turns out that our defeated former Congressman Henry Bonilla's potential new gig with the Bushies has come through, as reported by the Houston Chronicle today:
President Bush has nominated former Rep. Henry Bonilla, a Texas Republican, to be the U.S. representative to the Organization of American States, the White House announced Thursday.
Bonilla said his responsibilities would include work on policies such as trade, immigration and energy sales. Bonilla dealt with those issues while in Congress.
His nomination must be approved by the Senate. The previous U.S. ambassador to the OAS, John Maisto, has resigned.
