Glad to see this issue hasn’t died.

Time for a second investigation.
Just an “adminsitrative oversight...a clerical error”
“Republican investigators concluded that the key motive behind the firing was unhappiness with Walpin’s aggressive investigation of misuse of AmeriCorps funds by Kevin Johnson, the mayor of Sacramento, California who is a prominent political ally of President Obama.”
Democrat Socialists do not believe in Rule of Law.
They believe in total power.
Mr. Walpin is just one example of their attitude. The only reason that we, or the Republican congressmen know his name is because he decided not to go quietly.
Further backs what many of us have long stated: The Democratic Party is a criminal organization.

You silly person - of course there is a difference! Please note the “R” beside Nixon’s name and the “D” next to Obama’s! I hope I cleared that up for you. /sarc (kinda)
“Glad to see this issue hasnt died.”
Aye to that...
More ammo for the 2011 impeachment proceedings.
