Rove protÃ©gÃ© Tim Griffin, who replaced Attorneygater Bud Cummins as Eastern Arkansas' US Attorney, has resigned.
Michael Teague, a spokesperson for Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR), commented: "His departure from the US Attorney Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas is a positive development and the Senator is looking forward to having credible leadership restored there." Ouch!
But don't weep for Griffin, who looks to land on his feet: Presumed GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson's campaign is already " in talks" with him about taking a top job with the campaign. Of course they are.
