Office of Special Counsel to investigate U. S. attorney firings

The Office of Special Counsel will examine the firing of eight U. S. attorneys, according to an article in today's Washington Post.
Investigators will look into possible violations of the Hatch Act, which is designed to ensure federal resources are not used for political purposes.
The firings included Bud Cummins of Arkansas, who was in the middle of an investigation into the awarding of lucrative license fee offices in Missouri when he was given the heave-ho.
