Bad day for accountability

By Libby

I didn't get to this yesterday, but it's bad news for those who care about holding this administration accountable for its corruption.
One of government's chief internal watchdogs resigned yesterday, as Comptroller General David M. Walker, an outspoken gadfly and frequent witness on Capitol Hill, announced his plans to lead a new foundation focused on U.S. fiscal responsibility.
Walker is on of the few holdovers from before the current band of thieves took over the White House and he's been fearless in exposing their pickpocketing of the treasury on behalf of their corporate cronies. It's unlikely we'll get anyone as honest if Bush gets to nominate them, assuming he doesn't just let the office remain unmanned, which would serve his nefarious ends even better.
