McKay Testifies

Former U.S. Attorney testified in Congress yesterday. Did the Administration ask him to resign because of performance issues or because of partisan dissatisfaction about his investigation of alleged vote fraud in the 2004 gubernatorial election? An aide to Rep. "Doc" Hastings (R - Wash.) called McKay twice to ask about the election issue. And the Times website includes a 2005 letter from the Building Industry Association of Washington to Rep. Hastings asking him to call on President Bush to fire McKay. McKay goes down fighting, Seattle Times, March 7, 2007.

The Washington Post has a nice graphic (March 6) listing the eight fired U.S. attorneys, quoting from their job reviews, listing significant cases, and adding other notes.
