McKay ousted for not prosecuting bogus "voter fraud"

Fired US Attorney John McKay speaks out

In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with Truthout, John McKay, the US attorney for western Washington state, who was fired in December, said he believes that he was ousted because he did not convene a federal grand jury to pursue allegations of voter fraud related to the 2004 governor's election in the state in which Democrat Christine Gregoire defeated Republican Dino Rossi by a margin of 129 votes. McKay said Republicans in his state with close ties to the White House demanded that he launch an investigation into the election and bring charges against Democrats for voter fraud despite the fact that there was no evidence to support the claims of vote-rigging.
