Failed Politician Meg Whitman Finds New Part-Time Work

After spending nearly $150 million to not get elected governor of California, former eBay chief Meg Whitman, 54, is still employable! She’s joining the Bay Area’s venture capital outfit Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers as “a strategic adviser to help scope investments and coach startups.” She’ll be working part-time at the firm. Kleiner Perkins has sunk money into Groupon and Twitter the same way Whitman promised to sink money into defending California’s right to keep gays from marrying. Let’s all wish Whitman well, and hope she delivers a better return on investment for fellow billionaire clients than she could on the campaign trail. After all, giving Whitman some busy work means one less American on the employment roster.
