U.S. Special Counsel Office Raided by FBI

WASHINGTON — The office of the official responsible for protecting federal workers from political interference was raided by F.B.I. agents on Tuesday as part of an investigation into whether he himself mixed politics with official business.

The raid took place at the office of Scott J. Bloch, the head of the Office of Special Counsel. Computers and documents were seized by agents trying to determine whether Mr. Bloch obstructed justice by hiring an outside company to “scrub” his computer files, The Associated Press reported. Investigators also searched Mr. Bloch’s home in suburban Virginia after obtaining a subpoena. --NYTimes.com

I really am enjoying watching the walls come crumbling down around the Bush administration. These complete incompetents that Bush hired are walking around in a minefield of stupid. These guys were Karl Rove's toadies, and Bloch himself is one of the homo-hatin' Bush partisans. Lovely people.
