Griffin is the fool who started the whole controversy about the U.S. Attorneys. While Gonzales was telling Pryor that Griffin would be nominated, Griffin was running around telling people that he was going to bypass the Senate confirmation process.
Griffin was highly regarded by the Arkansas GOP - until the memos were released showing how he got the job. The prosecutor that Griffin replaced got fired and trashed for no legitimate reason.
I'm sorry to see Fred getting stuck with Griffin.

Ah. Is this connected in any way to the complaints that he “disenfranchised” black voters in Florida, or is that separate?

The US Attorney situation is so convoluted that this is right in front of my nose and I still don't understand it......how could anyone bypass the confirmation process? It's like saying he's going to fly to Washington without getting on an airplane.
