    •  Civil Service Rules make that essentially (5+ / 0-)

      impossible. You would have to find cause in order to fire them. Even if they're dirty, documenting it and eliminating them will be the work of years. The ones that are merely ideologically repulsive probably can't be got rid of at all.

      In 2000, a criminal became President. In 2004, we failed to remove him.

      •  But (4+ / 0-)

        Their youth and inexperience in dealing with superiors whose ideals are in conflict with theirs may set them up for insubordination. And they can be fired for repeated violations. Or if they are found by their new "bosses" to be in violation of their oath of office or their obligations and responsibilities. Just document, document, document. It can be accomplished in short order if handled aggressively but properly.
