At the National Association of Former U.S. Attorneys conference in Miami this weekend, former Arkansas U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins, who was fired to make way for Karl Rove protege Tim Griffn, offered some advice to incoming Attorney General Michael Mukasey, saying he should fire Justice Department communications director Brian Roehrkasse. “This guy, frankly, intentionally misled and deceived the press and the public on a number of occasions, and just told outright lies,” Cummins said.
