Obama Seeks to Rehire Nevada US Attorney Fired by Bush

  • Print

Fired by the Bush administration in 2006 along with eight other top federal prosecutors for what some consider to have been political reasons, Daniel Bogden, it appears, may soon have his old job back as the U.S. attorney for the district of Nevada.

He is being nominated by President Barack Obama to return to his old post, reports McClatchy Newspapers. Bogden, a former military proseucutor, was initially appointed by President George W. Bush in 2001.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had urged Obama to reappoint Bogden.
