LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Five federal prosecutors fired during the presidency of former President George W. Bush are set to speak at a forum in Little Rock.
The five are among nine U.S. attorneys who lost their jobs with the U.S. Justice Department in 2006. They will participate in a panel discussion on Monday at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock law school about the firings.
Among those participating will be a former U.S. attorney in Arkansas, Bud Cummins. Others will be Paul Charlton of Arizona, John McKay of Washington state, Carol Lam of California and David Iglesias of New Mexico.
Tim Griffin, who worked in the Bush White House, was named interim U.S. attorney after Cummins was fired. Griffin, who resigned the prosecutor post after six months, is the Republican nominee for the 2nd Congressional District in central Arkansas.
