Trial by Firing
The ignominious tenure of the Bush Administration is limping toward its finale. That means its tell-all time. Already this spring, former White House press secretary Scott McClellan has controversially dished in What Happened, and now former U.S. Attorney for New Mexico David Iglesias gives us In Justice: Inside the Scandal That Rocked the Bush Administration. Iglesias is one of the seven U.S. Attorneys who infamously were canned without explanation. The former Bush loyalist (what was he thinking?) and appointee will be at Changing Hands reading from and signing copies of the new book. Iglesias says he was ordered fired by top White House officials because he would not expedite the indictments of key Democratic figures in time for the 2006 midterm elections. Heres hoping he has a few more damning nuggets to share at this reading.
