General counsel Bob Bauer sent a letter to Atty. Gen. Michael Mukasey charging that coordinated misconduct by McCain campaign representatives and GOP officials were relevant to the special prosecutors work, because the activities may relate to the dismissal of seven U.S. attorneys in late 2006.

The letter requests that the special prosecutors inquiry include a review of any involvement by Justice Dept. and White House officials in supporting the McCain-Palin campaign [and RNC’s] systematic development and dissemination of unsupported, spurious allegations of vote fraud.
