Suppose you are a board charged with hiring an orchestra president. You have a candidate that has no significant arts administration experience but photographs well and apparently has some well-connected friends. He has a minor problem with having been a registered sex offender. However, that's a long time ago in a place far, far away, and it all turned out happily, or so you're told. Still, wouldn't that be a resume you would, like, immediately set aside? I guess not.
