"St." Pete Needs a Lawyer

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Senator Pete Domenici has hired a well-known Washington defense lawyer to represent him in a preliminary ethics investigation.

The investigation is looking into allegations that the New Mexico Republican pressured U.S. Attorney David Iglesias to rush indictments against Democrats before the 2006 election.

Iglesias has since been fired.

Domenici hired Lee Blalack on Feb. 28, the same day Iglesias went public with his accusations.

Iglesias said last week he believes he was forced out of his job for political reasons after refusing pressure from Domenici and Republican Congresswoman Heather Wilson.

In testimony before Congress on Wednesday, Iglesias said he “felt leaned on” and “felt pressured” by Domenici and Wilson.


[Anyone still think that "St." Pete has been good for LANL? -Ever since 1999, when he invented NNSA? Anyone at LANL still think that NNSA has been good for the country? Anyone NOT in management above Group Leader think that privatization was a 'nifty' idea? -Another 'great' thing that "St." Pete's NNSA brought to LANL.]

The number of politicians and high-level corporate executives that have lately been exposed as being just plain outright corrupt is oddly reassuring: human nature doesn't seem to be changing much. It's comforting to know what to expect.

Bye, Pete -- we mostly won't miss you very much.
Who do Mikey and his bunch call now to save their "Bacon", they are going to need Pete more than ever heading into the unknown era of FY 08...oh Dear we thought that the train wreck was only going to be a crash's going to be catostrophic..for Los Alamos....anyone wanna buy a house?

Gee, I thought Sen Domenici was just going to use something along the lines of, "I don't think you should worry about who said what and just get over it," and be done with it. Oh well, guess I was wrong.
So much for character counts.
