GOP Rep. John Boozman Implicated In US Attorney Scandal
Another Republican Congressman is about to go down in the US Attorney scandal. Rep. John Boozman of Arkansas now appears to be part of the scheme that conspired to fire Bud Cummins for political reasons and did not tell his Democratic colleagues:
The White House told a Republican member of Congress last summer about its plans to fire a U.S. attorney in Arkansas and replace him with a former aide to presidential adviser Karl Rove, but it did not tell Democratic lawmakers, according to a new Justice Department e-mail released yesterday.
The White House called Rep. John Boozman (R-Ark.) "and pretty much told him what they are doing with this appointment and how they are going about it," according to a July 6 e-mail from Bud Cummins, then the U.S. attorney in Little Rock.
