Federal Prosecutor in West Virginia Leaves Office
The Associated Press
Published: Aug 1, 2005 CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The chief federal prosecutor for southern West Virginia abruptly left office Monday, and a Justice Department official would not comment on the departure.

A call to U.S. Attorney Kasey Warner's home was not immediately returned.

Warner, 53, was appointed four years ago by President Bush. His office prosecuted several vote-buying cases this past year in some Democratic counties, landing guilty pleas from a sheriff and a police chief, among others.

Defense attorneys have complained that investigators looking to catch people buying and selling votes have instead intimidated local citizens.

Warner's brother, Kris, became the head of the state Republican Party in 2001, while Monroe "Monty" Warner was the GOP's nominee for governor in 2004.

Kris Warner resigned as party chairman in May amid mounting pressure from GOP critics over his handling of party affairs. Some of the complaints stemmed from his use of party resources and funds to aid Monty Warner, who was soundly defeated by in November.

Didn't Joseph Kennedy buy WV as a present for his son Johnny Rotten Kennedy in 1960?
