Report: Bush Justice Department Broke The Law By Hiring Only Loyal Bushies

File this under: Illegal Politicization of Justice


"Individuals at the department were rejecting any of our candidates who could be construed as left-wing or who were perceived, based on their appearances and resumes and so forth, as being more liberal," Kevin Ohlson, deputy director of the department's executive office of immigration review, complained to Justice investigators.

The ramifications of politicizing the traditionally-independent Justice Department are manifest. The real question is whether or not Congress will do anything about it. When you take into account the US attorney scandal and the prosecution of Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, I'm pretty sure an entire impeachment case could be built upon this.
