Newark mayor hires Apprentice 4′s Randal to be part of his transition team

The Apprentice 4 winner Randal Pinkett is “among the dozen selected to lead Newark Mayor- elect Cory Booker’s transition team,” the Star-Ledger reports. Randal “will co-chair the economic development section,” according to the AP.

Randal is also working for Donald Trump on his Atlantic City casinos, in addition to his speaking engagements, a forthcoming book, and charity lunches.

Kind of makes Bill “I haven’t left Donald Trump’s side in more than two years” Rancic seem like a loser.
