DC Madam Invesitigation Leads to Monica Goodling, Attorney Firings

Poor David Vitter. The job security of Deborah Jeane Palfrey's most prominent client just got a bit shakier.

See, the main (if not only) reason his fellow Republicans aren't currently trying to boot him like they are Larry "Wide Stance" Craig is because a Democrat is -- for the next couple of months -- governor of Louisiana. But when Piyush "Bobby" Jindal is sworn in as governor of the Pelican State, Louisiana will join Larry Craig's state of Idaho in having a Republican governor, one that will appoint a Republican to replace Vitter should he be forced to leave his seat for any reason.

And his reasons for doing so just got a bit hotter, with the heating up of the long-simmering "DC Madam" case:

CLG exclusive: Citizens for Legitimate Government (CLG) has learned that a US Judge will hear a selective prosecution argument made by the so-called DC Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, on Monday. Palfrey told CLG that Monica Goodling "likely will be subpoenaed in this matter - along with many others at Justice - in the near future."

Oh, my. And get this:

According to Mr. Sibley, to support this contention, Ms. Palfrey "will be offering a composite exhibit of statements, news articles and a memo from Monica Goodling which collectively detail the politicization of the Department of Justice in a manner which lends credence to Jeane's argument of selective prosecution. At the conclusion of the argument, Jeane will be asking the Court to issue subpoenas and conduct an evidentiary hearing into these allegations."

Double oh my.

This ought to be interesting.
