Bush Administration Facing New Investigation

The White House is facing a new investigation from the Office of Special Counsel. The Investigation will focus on White House Operations, particularly the activities of Karl Rove and his involvement in the firings of U.S. Attorneys. See here and here. The agency will be looking for violations of the Hatch Act.

I'm skeptical about these kinds of investigations. Although the agency is independent, the person leading the probe was appointed by Bush. These investigations never seem to go anywhere. But even the news of a new investigation won't be good for Bush & Co. or the Republican Party, especially with the election next year.
