Goodbye Billy!

The first major beheading of the Rove Republican Racket at the U.S. Department of Justice occured on Wednesday.

Fox News writes:
The head of the Justice Department unit blamed for botching the prosecution of former Sen. Ted Stevens is stepping down. William Welch, who led the department's public integrity unit, plans to return to Massachusetts. The unit will conduct a national search to find his replacement.

"I think Bill believes it would be best for him on a personal level and best for the criminal division that at this period of time, that he wants to go back to Boston where so much of his career was based," said Lanny Breuer, assistant attorney general in the criminal division. [T]he public integrity unit took a hit in April when Attorney General Eric Holder moved to drop the federal government's case against Stevens, the veteran Republican lawmaker from Alaska. Stevens was convicted on seven felony counts of corruption in the fall of 2008 and subsequently lost his bid for re-election, but Holder decided to abandon the case due to prosecutorial misconduct.
Holder should now target the left-over political henchmen of the Rove Republican Racket still located in many of the 93 U.S. Attorney Offices. More beheadings are needed to remove the injustices of the Rove-Bush-Cheney era.
