WHY WERE THEY FIRED?….The Washington Post investigates the case of fired U.S. Attorney Margaret Chiara today and….scratches its head. “Western Michigan’s legal community does not know what to think.”

The LA Times investigates the case of fired U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden today and….scratches its head. “The reasons for the abrupt dismissal remain a mystery, but it has sparked wide outrage in Las Vegas.”
