Fired U.S. Attorney John McKay, now a visiting professor at the Seattle University School of Law, will host two fellow purged prosecutors for a forum on the U.S. attorney scandal.

Joining McKay will be David C. Iglesias, the former U.S. attorney for New Mexico, and Paul K. Charlton, the former prosecutor for Arizona. McKay, Iglesias and Charlton are three of the most controversial firings of the eight ousted prosecutors, because they were either conducting sensitive investigations of Republicans or under fire for not prosecuting Democrats around the time of their dismissals on Dec. 7.

All three were also contacted by members of Congress or their staff at a sensitive time regarding ongoing criminal corruption investigations.

McKay’s forum will take place on May 9. Alberto Gonzales is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee the very next day.
