Nine is the new Eight

To every body's absolute SHOCK, the list of fired U.S. Attorneys is growing. The New York Times:

WASHINGTON, May 9 — The former United States attorney in Kansas City, Mo., said Wednesday that he was pushed to resign last year after disagreements with the Justice Department over politically sensitive cases. That would make him the ninth federal prosecutor forced out by department officials in Washington.

The prosecutor, Todd P. Graves, who held the office in Kansas City from 2001 until March 2006, was the subject of a complaint in 2005 from a staff member for Senator Christopher S. Bond, Republican of Missouri, a spokesman for Mr. Bond confirmed.
Failure to sue to purge voter rolls, failure to prosecute 'voter fraud.' Blah, blah, blah... Giving Claire McCaskill (D) a letter before her attempt to unseat Jim Talent (R) "saying there had been insufficient evidence to file charges in a case from the 1990s that involved her office manager." Move along. Nothing to see here. Move along, move along...
