122. Todd Graves has not said he was pressured out in 2006
It seems he is covering for the AG....

Documents are said to name 4 who were reviewed, not fired.

WASHINGTON -- Senior congressional aides who have seen unedited internal documents say the Bush administration considered firing at least a dozen U.S. attorneys before settling on eight late last year.

The four who escaped dismissal came from states that the White House considered political battlegrounds in the last presidential election: Missouri, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.


The congressional aides, who asked not to be identified because they weren't authorized to discuss the information publicly, on Friday confirmed to McClatchy Newspapers that former U.S. Attorney Todd Graves of Kansas City, Mo., and U.S. Attorney Thomas Marino of Scranton, Pa., were among the 12 whose jobs were in jeopardy.

Graves said Friday he was surprised to learn that he'd been considered a possible target for dismissal, but he expressed relief that he was no longer with the Justice Department.

"The current environment at the department can only be described as toxic. ... What is going on now in D.C. is a three-ring circus, and I don't want anything to do with it," he told the Kansas City Star.
