Could the 2010 mid-term become a referendum on the US Attorneys firing scandal? Well, okay, there are a few other issues in play despite this one being close to my heart. But there may soon be two US Attorney firing scandal figures (on the side of darkness, mind you) running for the House next year.
We already have Tim Griffin, the Rove protege who filled the chair of fired US Attorney Bud Cummins in Arkansas, running against Rep. Vic Snyder. And now we hear that Mary Beth Buchanan, a career piece of work who was involved in the scandal on a few different fronts, is considering a challenge to Rep. Jason Altmire (D) in western Pennsylvania.
