Deputy Assistant Secretary for Food

In one of the more odd matches in American politics, supersized Republican County Council at-large candidate Steve Abrams brags that he was once Deputy Assistant Secretary of Agriculture for Food.

His full title, bestowed by President Bush, was Deputy Assistant Secretary of Agriculture for Food and Consumer Services.

Abrams claims credit for the introduction of the Food Guide Pyramid "under his watch." (Note the passive voice in the original text, indicating that he knows he had nothing to do with the development, but isn't beneath taking credit for it anyway.)
