New Indications Atty. Firings Linked to Voter-Fraud Probe
The Justice Department last year considered firing two U.S. attorneys in Florida and Colorado, states where allegations of voter fraud and countercharges of voter intimidation have flown in recent years, according to sources familiar with documents not released to the public.

Gregory Miller, the U.S. attorney for the northern district of Florida in Tallahassee, and Bill Leone, the former acting U.S. attorney for Colorado, were among at least 26 of the nation's 93 U.S. attorneys suggested for termination between February 2005 and December 2006, according to the sources. At least 13 of those are still in their posts.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified last week that the effort was limited to eight U.S. attorneys fired since June, and other administration officials have said only a few others were suggested for removal.

Florida and Colorado bring to nine the number of closely contested election states where the Bush administration set out to replace prosecutors. In Washington and at least six other states, it now appears, U.S. attorneys were fired or considered for firing as Republicans in those states urged investigations or prosecutions of alleged Democratic voter fraud.

U.S. attorneys investigate BILKING BILLIONS

Topics:
How is it that $$ BILLIONS $$ of fraud does not put CEOs in jail?
How is it that $$ BILLIONS $$ of fraud cases seem to evaporate or settle for so little?
How were those $$ BILLIONS $$ in lobbying by single industries spent?

Focusing on The BIG PICTURE requires a really wide-angle lens with long historical depth of field.
