Democrats Want Abramoff Prosecutor:


Thirty-five Senate Democrats and Independent James Jeffords (I-VT) called on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the scandal surrounding Jack Abramoff. The New York Times reports that the Senators declared that the appointment of a special prosecutor was necessary because of “Mr. Abramoff’s significant ties to Republican leadership in Congress and allegations of improper activity involving administration officials.”
