Sara Taylor, the sequel

Get out the popcorn:

"Evidence is mounting that White House efforts to inject political considerations into official government business extend beyond the Department of Justice and the General Services Administration," Waxman wrote to Taylor. [...] "It appears that even historically nonpartisan federal agencies like ONDCP were expected to use federal resources to assist endangered Republican members."

Waxman asked Taylor to voluntarily appear before the committee's staff for a July 24 deposition. [...] "You may also be asked questions at the deposition about other subjects being investigated by the Committee, including the use of RNC e-mail accounts by White House officials and White House political briefings to federal agency officials," he noted, adding that the committee was planning a July 30 hearing.

If that's not enough legal news for you, Gonzo strikes again:

Two House Democrats criticized Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for refusing to send a witness to the House Judiciary Committee for a hearing on voting rights.

But thanks, gottalaff, for saving US time by doing the leg work on these things.

Thanks for covering this important development.

Students for Sensible Drug Policy is calling for John Walters to resign, and we've set up an action alert where outraged citizens can send letters directly to the Drug Czar, demanding his resignation.

And members of Congress - who control ONDCP's budget - will be copied on all the messages.
