The Washington Post is beginning to report on the fact that a number of the fired U.S. Attorneys in 2006 were fired because they were targets of complaints that they were insufficiently active in bringing cases against people for voter fraud to court. Of course, the fired U.S. Attorneys have all pointed out that there were no cases strong enough to win a conviction for them to bring to court. The evidence just didn't support the Republican complaints. So in essence the White House (Karl rove) was firing U.S Attorneys and replacing them with hacks to try to get less ethical U.S. Attorneys in office before the next election.
It's nice to see that the Washington Post is reading Talking points Memo and TPM Muckraker and now, months later, trying to catch up on some of the reporting the TPM people have been doing since at least January 2007.
