Congressman: Obama should hire 'marriage czar'

Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), one of the most outspoken critics of administration policy "czars," said on Monday that the president should hire a Malaysian woman married 22 times as his "marriage czar."

Last week, the third-term Republican called on President Barack Obama's "czars" to testify before congress on their "authority and responsibilities" in the executive branch.

The president's "czars" have become a point of controversy among his opponents because they do not have to be confirmed by the Senate as cabinet-level officials do.

McHenry quipped on Twitter:

Possible "marriage czar" candidate? http://bit.ly/MbawI

McHenry linked the story of Wook Kundor, a 107-year-old woman from Malaysia who's current husband is 37 and currently undergoing drug rehabilitation treatment.

Kundor seeks a 23rd mate because she fears her spouse Muhammad might leave her for a younger woman.

"I realize that I am an aged woman. I don't have the body nor am I a young woman who can attract anyone," she told AFP.
