Walpin-Gate going Bi-Partisan?

There are two writers who seem to be doing most of the legwork in reporting on the Unjustly-fired Inspector General story. Byron York at the Washington Examiner and Robert Stacy McCain at American Spectator. They seem to be taking turns reporting on the story, which seems to be keeping it fresh.

The latest installment comes from McCain, who reports that the investigation is revealing raised bi-partisan eyebrows, which can't be all that pleasing to Obama.

In his piece, The Little Scandal that Could, McCain points out that Lieberman, who once showed reticence to question the Walpin firing actually appeared to backtrack after the Washington Times reported that fact.
....when accused by the Washington Times of "punting" the Walpin case, Lieberman responded that he was "committed to conducting an independent review to make sure Mr. Walpin's termination was not arbitrary, capricious, punitive, or political." And the suspicious circumstances surrounding that termination continue to be investigated.

AmeriCorps is under the Corporation for National Community Service (CNCS), which secured taxpayer money for AmeriCorps, who issued to St. HOPE, a non-profit organization under Sacramento Mayor and former NBA star Kevin Johnson.

$850k was, to put it kindly, allegedly squandered and the settlement between CNCS and AmeriCorps was to give Johnson a slap on the wrist and allow him to continue receiving taxpayer money.

Walpin protested and that's apparently when the trouble started (why 100% of the American people aren't applauding Walpin is beyond me but oh, well).

In any case, McCain is right about this story continuing to chug along.
