Former deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty is attempting to resuscitate his reputation by endorsing President-elect Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, Eric Holder.

You remember Paul McNulty. He’s one of the Bush administration officials involved in the firing of eight Attorneys General and compounded his malfeasance by lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee in February of 2007, claiming that the firings were “performance related,” later retracting his misleading testimony and blaming it on Monica Goodling.

Mr. McNulty may think this endorsement bolsters his credibility, but attempting to bootstrap yourself to more honest agents cannot wipe away the stain of your actions while in the employ of the Bush administration.

UPDATE (1/13/09): Paul McNulty’s name appears on page 18 of the final report of the Investigation of Allegations of Politicized Hiring and Other Improper Personnel Actions in the Civil Rights Division.
