President Barack Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, Janet Napolitano, 
has presided over the hiring of at least four senior staffers and 
advisers who have no law enforcement experience but align politically 
with the president.


Vladimir Skoric serves as a “special assistant” to the Homeland Security 
“deputy under secretary for cybersecurity.” Skoric began his career in 
politics in May 2007 as a “volunteer coordinator” at Obama For America. 
He then interned for Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and served 
as Obama For America’s Washington, D.C. youth director.

Skoric has also worked for The Small Business Project, Inc., as a 
business development analyst for a little more than two years. That 
organization describes itself as a company that “brings knowledge and 
expertise in starting small business programs to intermediaries, which 
in turn serve to strengthen small businesses locally,” focusing 
specifically on “providing forestry sector expertise.” Its mission does 
not have anything to do with law enforcement.

Even so, Skoric scored a senior level position in Obama’s Homeland 
Security Department.
