They serve at the pleasure of the President- that's why!

First the Democrats in Congress demand to know why 8 US. attorneys were fired by the President.

Now the Democrats in Congress are demanding an answer as to why some US attorneys were not fired.(ie. Steve Biskupic)

If Gonzales is asked about Biskupic, it would be the first time the embattled attorney general would be asked why a specific U.S. attorney kept his or her job. U.S. attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president.

"The focus has been on the eight forced to resign," said University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias. "However, many observers have wondered about how the remaining 85 kept their positions - e.g., were they pressured to do GOP's bidding, especially by prosecuting Democrats?"

You would think this was a joke, but the Democrats are serious!
