Haven’t paid attention to this because there are only about 10,000 other things going on, but good catch from Tapper:
After being briefed today on President Obama’s firing last week of Gerald Walpin, Inspector General of the Corporation for National and Community Service, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said the president did not abide by the same law that he co-sponsored – and she wrote – about firing Inspectors General.
“The White House has failed to follow the proper procedure in notifying Congress as to the removal of the Inspector General for the Corporation for National and Community Service,” McCaskill said. “The legislation which was passed last year requires that the president give a reason for the removal.”
Anyone have a good link to the backstory on this (other than the ABC links in the story)? And by a good link, I mean a link to a writeup from someone who hasn’t spent the last year wondering out loud about Obama’s Muslim heritage or birth certificate, so of course the NRO is out of the question.
