Rep. Doolittle Resigns His Seat

  It seems that Dr. Doolittle ( Rep. John Doolittle, R-Calif. ) has resigned from his House Appropriations Committee seat. The embarrassment of the F.B.I. raiding his home was probably the reason for Doolittle's  trip out the door.

    Here is a bit more from Roll Call

While Doolittle is expected to voluntarily take himself off the panel while the investigation continues, knowledgeable House sources said that Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and members of the Republican Steering Committee -- which determines committee assignments -- were prepared to remove him from his post if he would not do so himself.

   This makes it a lovely day in the neighborhood for some of us who disdain this administration. Hopefully when it is all over, Doolittle will be visiting the Federal Detention vacation center in an orange jumpsuit.
