Hagan: Don't Change Federal Prosecutor Just Yet

Democratic North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan says she is pressing the White House to keep a federal prosecutor on the job until he completes investigations into two prominent state Democrats.

Hagan said Wednesday she has received no assurances about the future of GOP-appointed U.S. Attorney George Holding. The White House earlier this week nominated Charlotte lawyer Thomas G. Walker to replace the top prosecutor in Raleigh.

Holding's district has been overseeing federal probes into two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and the state's former Democratic governor, Mike Easley. Hagan has said she wants Holding to have time to complete the investigations so as not to make the replacement process political.

    When a politician does not want something changed there is a reason. Are they hiding something? Is she afraid someone else may find better evidence? Will a Republician be appointed. Looks like she is trying to cover up something.

    This appears to be a reasonable, prudent and responsible thought process! I did not vote for her but I like the way she thinks!
