Congressman Steve Cohen Grills McNulty 

Political uber-blog "Talking Points Memo" ran a clip today of 9th District Congressman Steve Cohen grilling Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty.

The set-up: "In April, a group of anonymous Justice Department employees wrote to the House and Senate judiciary committees and accused Paul McNulty's chief of staff Michael Elston, of leading an effort to eliminate applicants to the Justice Department who were Democrats.

"And what did McNulty have to say when asked whether his right-hand man was working to politicize the hiring process at the Department? He doesn't know.

"Faint comfort."
