The Bush administration's firing of the eight US Attorneys may or may not be illegal but they are sure as hell hiding something. It is apparently routine to replace all the US Attorneys when a new administration takes over, and replace them with people of your own political persuasion, but it looks like these eight were not partisan enough. There has got to be a point at which politicizing the Justice Department, and interfering with the activities of US Attorneys, would be illegal but it remains to be seen if the Bush administration passed that point. But they are hiding something.

This story might provide a clue:

Several former voting rights lawyers, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of antagonizing the administration, said the division's political appointees reversed the recommendations of career lawyers in key cases and transferred or drove out most of the unit's veteran attorneys.
