Prosecutorgate heats up

Monica Goodling, the top aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, has resigned amid the scandal over the Bush administration's firing of eight federal prosecutors, all of them Republicans.

Goodling previously indicated that she will invoke Fifth Amendment protections against incriminating herself rather than testify before congressional committees investigating the matter.

The Rascal still wonders if some potential dynamite in this case has been produced by the closed-door testimony given last week by Rockford native Michael Elston. What we know about Elston is summarized here and here and here.

A useful and fairly well-detailed account of the controversy up to this point is available here from Wikipedia.

Clinton fires 93 his first day in office and you kooks had nothing to say about it. No crime has been committed.
