They’ve Been Working on the Railroading

All kinds of new poop headed down the tracks in the runaway train that we so lovingly call Gonzogate. The Senate Judiciary Committee questioned Wan Kim, the current assistant attorney general for civil rights about reports that 3 minority women in the DOJ’s civil rights division were shunted aside to “make room for some good Americans” (you can thank Kim’s predecessor, Bradley J. Schlozman, for that little gem), and assistant Attorney General Paul McNulty was back in the hotseat in front of the House Judiciary Committee rebutting Monica Goodling’s version of the facts.
From the Washington Post:

In the Senate yesterday, Democrats seized on the report that Schlozman had, while acting assistant attorney general for civil rights, removed the female lawyers — against their supervisors’ advice — as new evidence that the Justice Department under President Bush has been infected by improper political considerations.
Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.) described McNulty as the “caboose” in the firings process and said he had been unfairly singled out for blame. “I think you were poorly treated,” Delahunt said.

Al Fredo might think that he is driving this train….

    Train, train, train, train of fools. It’s time to park these folks on a siding. At least we know that this train ain’t bound for glory. Nice work, nonnie.

    HuffPo has an AP story… that Bill Mercer just resigned his #3 post at Justice, to avoid having to appear before Patrick Leahy under oath. He was interim number 3, and he had been nominated and was due to go for a confirmation hearing on Tuesday; instead he is withdrawing his name and is skipping out of the hearing.
    Bill Mercer told AP that he is very sad.
