March 28 (Bloomberg) -- The Justice Department said it provided inaccurate information to members of Congress in a February letter about the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.
Writing today to lawmakers investigating the terminations, the agency's acting head of legislative affairs, Richard Hertling, said that ``certain statements'' in the Feb. 23 letter were contradicted by documents that the department provided to Congress this month. Hertling didn't specify what the misstatements were.
You would figure that the question, "Why were they fired?" wouldn't be all THAT hard to answer, now, wouldn't you?
I guess that the REAL answer is so slimy that these guys will publicly disgrace themselves rather than say it.
