Let's Investigate

The whole fired U.S. attorneys issue smelled of Republican corruption, and with hearings starting tomorrow the focus seems to be on New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici.

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department said Monday that Republican Sen. Pete
Domenici called Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and his deputy four times
complain about a U.S. attorney who claims he was fired for not rushing a
corruption probe
This could get interesting, as Republicans no longer have the majority that made them immune to investigations. Sen. Domenici has always had questionable ethics, but the Bush justice department has not cared to pursue members of their own party. Watch for fallout over the next few weeks.
