Let’s say that you are a minister. Just for the fun of it, the minister of municipalities. Part of your job, among other things, is to recommend hiring or firing of mayors. Like the mayor of Amman. You can get him hired or fired.
Now, suppose that you have a super genius engineer kid, who is so interested in public service, just like his dad. Suppose, out of noblesse oblige, that this kid is willing to serve the public interest for a fraction of what his real genius is worth, say 2500 dinars a month (only 5 to 10 times what a non-genius peer would make). So, the mayor of Amman hires him.
Now, what would be wrong with that?
