First rule of PR: don't lie

Wolfowitz Aide Draws Criticism In World Bank Panel's Report

WASHINGTON -- World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz's top communications aide, Kevin Kellems, is singled out for criticism in a draft report prepared by a World Bank board committee investigating whether Mr. Wolfowitz used his position to secure generous compensation for his girlfriend.

Mr. Kellems, a communications strategist who was a part of Mr. Wolfowitz's inner circle from his arrival at the World Bank in 2005, was quoted in a newspaper article stating that "all arrangements" concerning Mr. Wolfowitz's companion "were made at the direction of the bank's board of directors."

Especially don't lie to your organization's board of directors.
