"McKay on hit list in March 2005."

“Former U.S. Attorney John McKay’s name was on a list of federal prosecutors to be fired in March 2005, 18 months earlier than previously reported.” This timing is “contemporaneous with Republican challenges to the closely contested 2004 governor’s election in Washington state, won by Democrat Chris Gregoire. Many supporters of the GOP candidate, Dino Rossi, angrily believed that McKay did not do enough to investigate their claims of voter fraud — something McKay disputes.”
