Democratic Priorities

How incredibly revealing. Despite the fact that the House Judiciary Committee has a staff of 30 lawyers -- not counting subcommittees -- John Conyers wants to hire private sector lawyers to pursue assorted investigations of the Bush White House. That's your taxpayer money at work, my friends -- at least what's left after the spinach and peanut and insect infestation subsidies in the Iraq supplemental.

What's more, Conyers isn't looking to hire just any lawyers. He's after Arnold & Porter, one of white-shoe firms in the District, along with Deloitte and Touche.

Does John Conyers really thing the US government is understaffed? Please.
