Arkansas Online (subscription required) is reporting that Interim USA Griffin has decided not have his name go forward for the permanent position if he has to go through the confirmation process. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez had appointed Tim Griffin in one of the recent surprise changes in U.S. Attorneys. Attorney John Wesley Hall questioned this appointment in legal documents (see here) Griffin appears to be concerned about the process, if he has to go through a confirmation hearing. Is this not the same legislative process that creates the laws he will be enforcing?
