More Administration Jobs Remain Unfilled

All presidential administrations have vacancies -- that's inevitable -- but an analysis of appointments data by ProPublica reveals that more presidentially appointed positions were sitting vacant at the end of President Obama's first term (13%) than at the end of Bill Clinton's (11%) or George W. Bush's (10%) first terms.

Key finding: "At least 68 of the positions remain vacant, including 43 that have been vacant for more than a year."
