1. Another DOJ Update; a senior DOJ official subsequently confirmed
that knowingly false answers were given, most likely by Leura
Canary's office.
2. Rove's shop (the White House Office of Political Affairs) that was
planning a scheme apparently known as the "asset deployment"
team.

Another DOJ Update

The Dog Ate My Homework, Week Four.

U.S. Attorney Leura Canary has now hit the one-month mark in her
failure to respond to Congress’s demands that she turn over papers
surrounding the Siegelman case. I continue to believe that there are
very compelling reasons for her failure to turn over the papers. This
one month of stonewalling has to be viewed as of a piece with a FOIA
request to which, as a senior DOJ official subsequently confirmed to
me, knowingly false answers were given, most likely by her office.
When they’re turned over, these documents may well make her
claims to have withdrawn from the prosecution of the Siegelman case
out to be less than correct. And one thing’s almost certain: they will
demolish her deputy’s claims that he made decisions all alone—a
claim which at this point no one believes, except for writers at the
Alabama G.O.P.’s house organs, the Mobile Press-Register and the
Birmingham News. All of this provided very compelling reason for
Mrs. William Canary to report that the dog has eaten her homework,
for the fourth week running.

reelection last year:
