Even Crack Dealers Care About the Constitution

As Josh Marshall put it.

An Arkansas lawyer has risen to challenge the law which allows the administration to circumvent Senate approval when installing new U.S. Attorneys.

On behalf of his client, an alleged crack cocaine dealer who's accused of killing a man he'd robbed to prevent him from talking to the police, Little Rock lawyer John Hall has challenged the appointment of Timothy Griffin, the recently-appointed U.S. Attorney for eastern Arkansas with close ties to the White House.

Meanwhile in the Senate, Schumer (D-NY) is moving to have a Judiciary Committee hearing on the firings and appointments of Attorney Generals by Gonzalez and Feinstein (D-CA) (along with Specter, R-PA) is working to get a bill thru to close this loophole. Ofc, Specter was responsible for the loophole being there in the first place, but i guess he gets points for cleaning up his mess.
