Vote Fraud and the US Attorney Firings

The Washington Post notes today that one issue that triggered the firing of eight US attorneys was the perceived failure of these people to vigorously pursue voting fraud cases. The Post says:

The dismissals took place after President Bush told Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales in October that he had received complaints that some prosecutors had not energetically pursued voter-fraud investigations, according to a White House spokeswoman.

This is ironic, given the posting below about the lack of vote fraud in the US!
