Good Grief: Deval Patrick Rumored as Replacement for Holder

On this upside, this would benefit the people of Massachusetts, the stooges who twice have elected this hack as their governor.

Attorney General Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious guns scandal woes could prove to be a career opportunity for Gov. Deval Patrick, if the nation’s beleaguered top lawman finds himself on the outs, pundits told the Herald.

Patrick was rumored to be one of President Obama’s AG candidates in 2008, but the Milton Democrat had only finished his second year as governor at that point.

Now, Holder is in a showdown with House Republicans — who voted to hold him in contempt last week — and Sen. Scott Brown and others have called for his resignation.

“The chances of a new attorney general in a second Obama administration, if there is one, has increased dramatically,” said Peter Ubertaccio of Stonehill College. “This controversy doesn’t seem to be going away, and there’s traditionally turnover in second terms. … If the governor is not harboring presidential aspirations, I think he’d be a natural fit for it.”

Let’s hope the results of November 6 make this a moot issue.

    From what I understand is that Kamala Harris from Cali is the next in line, promised by obama due to her campaign bundling, as well her 25 billion dollar windfall from BofA.
    Her brother-in-law , West, is already in the justice department.
