I've just added four new links/postings...

The latest from Byron York:
A highlight:
After seven weeks of trying, investigators looking into President Barack Obama’s abrupt firing of AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin are still unable to answer the most basic question of the whole affair: Why did the president do it?

An item from June by Quin Hillyer that I missed wherein he quotes from a great source/witness in the Walpin affair:

A related item from Mr. Hillyer from today:

And a new archive item by Sam Stanton of the Sacramento Bee:

20090728@1912 - IG-GATE UPDATE

I've just added the following links:

Robert Stacy McCain:

Rep. Matsui / Mayor Kevin Johnson:

Eric Hogue [Hogue News]:

Judicial Watch vs. Treasury Dept. [documents]:

From the first Stacy McCain posting listed above:

Readership of The American Spectator includes former AmeriCorp inspector general Gerald Walpin, who was fired last month on orders from President Obama. In a telephone interview today, Walpin said he noticed last week's report that Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.) had contacted White House officials in March, publicly vowing that sanctions against Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson didn't prevent the city from getting its share of bailout cash.

Questions about what role Matsui may have played in Walpin's dismissal are being asked on Capitol Hill, and the ex-IG himself is curious about the Sacramento congresswoman's intervention, which drew attention after it was
highlighted by California blogger Eric Hogue.

On the larger question -- whether political pressure over his investigation of Mayor Johnson's St. HOPE Academy was a factor in the June 10 quit-or-be-fired ultimatum from the White House -- Walpin is certain.

"I have no doubt about that," Walpin said.
