Slow Drip Massacre: The Domeneci Connection

The plot marches on.

Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.) acknowledged today that he contacted the U.S. attorney in Albuquerque last fall to inquire about the status of an ongoing corruption probe of Democrats, saying he regretted the call but "never pressured him nor threatened him in any way."

Domenici also said he had told the Justice Department that U.S. Attorney David C. Iglesias should be replaced, but said that occurred prior to the call about the criminal investigation of Democrats.

I wonder if somebody pulled a Thomas Becket, and somebody axed the U.S. attorney who was moving too slow in his mind.
