or anyone else's. From the AP, Flanigan Withdraws Nomination at Justic
Timothy E. Flanigan has withdrawn as a nominee to be deputy attorney general amid a delay in his confirmation because of his dealings with indicted Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff, The Associated Press has learned.
This is some nice fruit to be borne from the Abramoff scandal, eh? More from the article:
"Members of this committee have asked a number of questions of Mr. Flanigan about these incidents, but each set of responses leads to more questions," Sen. Patrick Leahy...said in requesting a second hearing on Flanigan's nomination. One had been scheduled for Oct. 18.
Lawmakers also have questioned Flanigan sharply about his role in crafting administration policy allowing aggressive interrogation techniques be used on detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq.
