Notice a pattern here?

We've been hearing over the past few days about how two members of New Mexico's congressional delegation called and pressured David Iglesias, the former Federal Prosecutor for that state, into speeding up a corruption investigation involving a Democrat and then had him fired by the Bush administration when he refused.

As I blogged in December, Paul Charlton, investigating corruption charges against Rick Renzi, was also leaving (though in contrast to that post it now turns out that he got a firm push out the door.)

Then they also fired Carol Lam, the prosecutor who sent former GOP Congressman Duke Cunninham to prison.

On the day when they got caught being petty and mean spirited by the Libby guillty verdict, here they do it again.
