Senators press White House on political activities.

Sens. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) called for the resignation of General Services Administrator chief Lurita Doan. They also released a letter addressed to Chief of Staff Josh Bolten, signed by 25 Senators, asking the White House to answer specific questions about whether inappropriate political activity may have taken place elsewhere in the Executive Branch. “The Executive Branch is not an extension of the Republican National Committee,” it reads, “nor of any political party. Those who treat it as such must be held accountable.”
