News From The Federal Attorney Firing Hearings

Pajama Pete Domenici called David Iglesias at home while Iglesias was in the bedroom with his wife to pressure him to get a political indictment. Think about the pressure. The Senator from the state where you have your job at the whim of the same party calls you at night, on your home phone number to give you a hint that you need to play ball on this, to get an indictment in the news before the November election. Domenici's call was the first call at home like this Iglesias got in 10 years. Pajama Pete directly asked if they could get an indictment down before November. Iglesias said no, and Domenici hung up on him.

There are no allegations that Domenici asked for oral sex though. So we should probably just let this one slide.
