Now when you talk about the Justice Department, here’s a little justice.  Daniel Bogden was one of the 9 U.S. Attorneys fired during the Bush regime. Now Sen. Reid wants to right a wrong and have him return. It’s a nice gesture to help patch up an ugly chapter in the Justice Department.

Daniel Bogden had been a career prosecutor with the Department of Justice before being ousted in the unprecedented firings in 2006. He is being vetted now for his old job, Reid’s office said.

Reid, in an interview this afternoon, said he put Bogden’s name forward after consulting with federal judges and those familiar with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Nevada.

“I didn’t just do this on a whim,” Reid said in his office with Nevada press. “I just think it’s so unfair what happened to him.”

Bogden and the other attorneys were dismissed in 2006 leading to widespread investigations of politicization within the Justice department. President George W. Bush’s Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, stepped down in 2007.
