Pretty sure they had jobs, at least Nomi and Corran did. Wait...what? All politicians are terrible? This is a blanket rule? All government organizations are terrible? On principle, no one should ever have a government job? Or are you saying that every politician in the Old Republic era was terrible? @DigitalMessiah : You're right, and that is what I have been saying all along. The point of disagreement seems to be that the Jedi are to be blamed because they didn't realize they had been duped, or because they worked for the government.
