Fall Guy: Kenneth Melson, acting ATF chief, gets moved

Ken Melson, the interim head of the ATF takes the fall for Obama administration’s (very illegal)  Fast and Furious Operation.  This guy met privately with Congressman Issa’s  investigative committee earlier this summer.  Perhaps this places the Obama administration on a tightrope.  They moved Melson to the Office of Legal Policy,  as a  senior adviser on forensic science.  Perhaps this is where they can keep him close by, where it’s easiest to watch him.

Meanwhile…. U.S. attorney for Arizona, Dennis Burke, who felt so unhealthy when questioned by the Congressional investigators of Fast and Furious, that they had to stop,  has resigned from his post.

The rats are running for cover.
