legomymalfoy is running for the LJ Advisory Board. On of the tasks of the Advisory Board is to prevent abuses of power by the LJ Abuse Team. Interestingly legomymalfoy is on the abuse team and is running for the seat.
This would open the door to abuse in that due to legomymalfoy's position, they would not be able to perform their advisory duties in a fair an unbiased fashion.
Plus the seat was specifically set aside for a normal user, to offset the corporate views. To have an employee take the seat would be a slap in the face of the users.
