According to breaking news reports from David Codrea at Gun Rights Examiner, ATF Interim Head Ken Melson’s office was vacated over the weekend amid rumors of Melson’s reassignment from his ATF role as a result of the recent Operation Fast and Furious scandal. Further investigation has revealed that Melson has signed a one year contract with popular reality TV show Dancing with the Stars.
“We’ve admired Interim Director Melson’s tap dancing skills for quite some time” admitted Dancing with the Stars Executive Producer Mikhail Baryshnikov. “He’s light on his feet and has proven his ability to stay focused while under intense pressure from national exposure.”
Interim Director Melson’s spokesperson declined comment on the move, but hinted off the record that dancing and singing sensation Julio Iglesias Jr. might be in line to take over the reigns of the floundering ATF bureau.
