Sampson "Saving Face"?

by Mary

Kyle Sampson has gotten a great deal of publicity this week as the Chief of Staff for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and being a key figure orchestrating the ouster of the US Attorneys. His role in this affair became so toxic that the DoJ reported that he resigned at the beginning of the week. But a funny thing happened on his way out the door. His boss, Abu Gonzales, was fixin' to find him a new job within the Justice Department. Earlier today, NPR found out that Mr. Sampson was being outfitted with a new office in the legislative section of the environmental section. Here's a case that shows how highly valued "loyalty" is with the Bushies.
