The US Attorney story is not just the tale of another inept crony holding an important job in the Bush administration, it involves the alleged politicization of government in ways that should concern real conservatives. The Office of Special Counsel wants to know more.
LAT: [T]he Office of Special Counsel is preparing to jump into one of the most
sensitive and potentially explosive issues in Washington, launching a
broad investigation into key elements of the White House political
operations that for more than six years have been headed by chief
strategist Karl Rove.
The new investigation, which will examine the firing of at least one U.S. attorney, missing White House e-mails, and White House efforts to keep presidential appointees attuned to Republican political priorities, could create a substantial new problem for the Bush White House.
...the inquiry comes from inside the administration, not from Democrats in Congress...unlike the splintered inquiries being pressed on Capitol Hill, it is expected to be a unified investigation covering many facets of the political operation in which Rove played a leading part.
