"Reporting from Washington -- Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. replaced the Justice Department's top ethics watchdog Wednesday, one day after a federal judge criticized the agency as moving too slowly in probing alleged government misconduct in the prosecution of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.Holder named Mary Patrice Brown, a lawyer in the U.S. attorney's office in Washington, to take over the Office of Professional Responsibility, which investigates allegations of unethical conduct by the department's attorneys. Brown succeeds H. Marshall Jarrett, who will assume the helm of the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys. The executive office oversees all 93U.S. attorneys offices nationwide."
Holder has stated that he did not do in this in response to the Stevens Case Debacle, but either way it does show he is cleaning house- at ALL Levels.
