An Appearance of Impropriety

When a judge has a potential conflict, or when there is even an appearance of impropriety, one often finds the judge recusing him or herself from the case.  But this time it isn't a judge, and we also are not seeing a recusal.  Rather, we are seeing a full announcement of an investigation by the same branch that is investigating the investigator.  According to the Washington Post, Special Counsel Scott J. Bloch  has decided to investigate the Inglesias matter as well as other hot items in the news recently. But the question may be whether he should be the one charged with this important investigation.
