From regular commenter Joseph Finn comes this question:
“Does the Librarian of Congress have to resign with each administration?”
Many political appointees to non-political posts do have to resign with each administration, only to be re-appointed by fiat of the new administration, but, as Librarian Billington has served as the Librarian of Congress since the Reagan Administration, I wasn’t sure if his post was “at the pleasure of the President” or some other term.
We’ve sent email to the Librarian’s office hoping to find out, but maybe you know? Answer in the comments!
