Somebody inside the Beltway apparently likes Beth Phillips.
In 2009, President Obama appointed her as U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri in Kansas City.
Earlier this week, the White House nominated the U.S. Attorney for a federal judgeship in Missouri.
Before becoming U.S. Attorney she was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the same district from 2008 to 2009.
Before that, she worked at the law firm of Bartimus, Frickleton, Robertson & Gorny from 2001 to 2008.
She also worked an Assistant Prosecutor with the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office from 1997 to 2001.
