DoJ opens a formal investigation into possible misconduct by Monica Goodling. Turns out it’s against the law to ask candidates for jobs as Assistant U.S. Attorneys about their political views.
It’s hard to tell whether the impetus for this came from the career staff, or whether this is a matter of Gonzales trying to throw Goodling to the wolves to save his own worthless hide.
Don’t worry, though: none of the people who accused the Democrats of stirring up a fuss about nothing will bother to apoligize. Not their style.
