How It Works For Republicans

TPM Muckraker has the breakdown on the jaw dropping NYT piece about Debra Wang Yang, the former US Attorney in California’s Central District (Los Angeles).

Yang’s office was charged with investigating Republican Congressman Jerry Lewis and word is the White House (via Harriet Miers) really wanted her out. Wang got out before the December firings, claiming the grand catchall – “personal reasons” – for her resignation.

Well, there were apparently 1.5 million personal reasons as that is the number of dollars she got paid as a signing bonus to go to Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the law firm notorious for its Republican connections.

In fact, Gibby Dunn represents Jerry Lewis. So, in effect, Wang’s buy-out is coming, at least in part, from Lewis’ fees and probably a bunch of Lewis’ Republican protectors.

This should be headline news across the country.
