"Blank" and J Edgar Hoover have traits that are similar
« on: April 22, 2007, 09:24:18 am »

Hoover fired FBI agents randomly or frequently by singling out those who he thought "looked stupid like truck drivers" or he considered to be "pinheads."[2] He also relocated agents who had displeased him to career-ending assignments and locations. Melvin Purvis was a prime example; he was one of the more effective agents in capturing and breaking up 1930s gangs and received substantial public recognition, but a jealous Hoover maneuvered him out of the FBI.

J. Edgar Hoover was the nominal author of a number of books and articles. Although it is widely believed that all of these were ghostwritten by FBI employees, Hoover received the credit and royalties. It is thought that J Edgar had a secret sex life.

What kind of person would run off well qualified people because he was jealous or take credit for their accomplishments?
