Hiring New U.S. Attorneys Career Center - Who'd Want This Job, Anyway?, Nat'l L.J., April 10, 2007:

As officials in Washington spar over the recent firings of eight U.S. Attorneys, legislators and selection committees are interviewing candidates to fill positions that could last only about one year -- a condition that is limiting the field.

The candidates -- including federal prosecutors, former judges and private attorneys -- are vying for posts that, in addition to the unusually brief tenure, carry the daunting task of restoring order to offices thrown into disarray by the controversial firings.
The article says the three candidates in the Western District of Washington are interim U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Sullivan, former U.S. Rep. Rick White, and Michael Vaska, a litigation partner at Foster Pepper.
