Ship of Fools uss_sequoia.jpg

A Georgia Democratic Senate candidate says his failed efforts to keep the Presidential Yacht Sequoia safe for Washington cocktail parties are a credential for office. sequoia-nametag.jpg

Josh Lanier was Executive Trustee of the Presidential Yacht Trust, one of the parade of troubled entities owning the yacht in the years since President Carter sold it. This collection of Washington worthies had visions of putting the ship back on the public tab after gussying it up, but the Sequoia ended up sold to a shipyard.

Since then another owner has gussied it up, rents it for parties, and flirts with selling it back to the feds.
