Will DOJ Scandal Expand?

ABC News is reporting that the U.S. attorneys scandal might be more widespread than is currently thought.

Justin Rood reports that the number of U.S. attorneys fired by the Bush Department of Justice (DOJ) could be considerably higher than the current figure of nine.

Rood notes that Bush Administration officials for months have refused to directly answer a key question: Have other U.S. attorneys been fired, beyond the nine already publicly identified? At one point, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez seemed to admit that more than nine had been fired, but the DOJ has remained slippery on revealing the exact number.
