Interesting that the senator wants the U.S. Attorney Holding to stay in office and handle certain public corruption cases. Good or bad idea?

RALEIGH, N.C. – U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan on Friday submitted three names to President Barack Obama for U.S. attorney in the federal court system’s Eastern District of North Carolina.

But Hagan said she wanted U.S. Attorney George Holding to remain in office to handle political corruption investigations into former Gov. Mike Easley and former U.S. Sen. John Edwards.

She recommended Ben David, district attorney for New Hanover and Pender counties; Hampton Dellinger, Easley’s former legal counsel and a partner in the Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson law firm; and Thomas Walker, a partner at the Alston and Bird law firm who concentrates on complex federal and state government investigations and white-collar defense.
