Melodee Hanes, the live-in girlfriend of Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) who withdrew as a candidate for Montana U.S. Attorney over conflict of interest concerns, moderated a panel discussion today in the “Senate” room at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel. The topic was improving legal representation for juveniles who can’t afford an attorney.

Hanes is the acting Deputy Administrator for Policy in the Justice Department’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, an arm of the DOJ that supports research, training and programs for juvenile justice programs throughout the country. Hanes received the political appointment in OJP last June, a few months after she withdrew her candidacy for Montana U.S. Attorney.

When asked how her job is going, Hanes sweetly told Main Justice: “I don’t have any comments today.”

Hanes then thanked Main Justice for the question and quickly walked out of the room. Main Justice broke the story on her relationship with the powerful senator, who had recommended her along with two others for the plum federal prosecuting job.
