How might cover DOJ's Special Prosecutor

The BBC (among pretty much every other paper) reports New probe into US attorney affair. In the WaPo, Dan Froomkin shares further damning details. The White House claiming Executive Privilege in response to a Department of Justice, part of the Executive Branch I'll remind you, internal probe strikes plenty of folks (like looseheadprop) as rather odd. The exodus of DOJ underlings wrapped up in this mess was per FDL's Christy Hardin Smith not only fear of Hatch Act perils but also a way to get them the hell out of DC. These minions wouldn't even testify Karl Rove style! So far I'm not seeing much if anything in Alabama papers on the DOJ report yet given the treatment Don Siegelman's case has gotten from the Newhouse Triad I'll not expect them to give the story a whole lot of coverage.
