Firing of US attorneys and voter fraud

Ok, first things first. Someone please point out the section of the US Constitution that authorizes Congress to investigate the US Attorney General for firing the people he hires. Go look it up, I'll give you a minute.

Done? Great. I'm sure that while you were looking it up, you probably also found the section that says you can't post the Ten Commandments on state property.

US attorneys are hired and fired for their politics as well as their job skills. You may not like it, but this is the way it is. Hillary Clinton discussed this fact while also denying it. "This is a great difference," she said. "When a new president comes in, a new president gets to clean house. It is not done on case-by-case basis where you didn't do something that some senator or member of Congress told you to do in terms of investigation into opponents. It is 'Let's start afresh.' Every president has done that."
The new president cleans house to put people into that house that fit his politics. But the senator didn't mention that part.

Now the claim coming from the mouths of people who incorrectly think that this is a scandal is that these people were fired for lack of loyalty to the administration. Yes, this must be it. Let's get rid of all those people who may be investigating loyal republicans. This would easily explain why Scooter Libby was found guilty of forgetting but Sandy Berger goes free after stealing top-secret national security documents. It would explain why Delay was indicted for something that was not illegal when it happened. It would also explain why a republican war hero named Cunningham sits in prison, while William Jefferson sits on the Homeland Security Committee. For those who aren't keeping score, Jefferson is the guy who had about a hundred grand stashed in his freezer.

By now you are probably wondering what this has to do with voter fraud. Well, according to the Justice Department, at least two of the eight fired attorneys were fired for not pursuing voter fraud with the wanted vigor. Remember voter fraud? It's the issue that the democrats were up in arms over when Gore lost to Bush. They were up in arms yet again when Kerry lost to Bush. Of course, now that they have the majority in the House and Senate, it seems that voter fraud has been cured.

For more on the "scandal" take a look at this article which covers a few more reasons these people were fired. Pay close attention to the change in tone by Dianne Feinstein.
