Fallout in DC

The District of Columbia's attorney general (I honestly did not know there was such a post) has resigned. Here are the important points:

"D.C. Attorney General Linda Singer resigned yesterday, as lawyers in her office prepare to defend the city's 30-year-old ban on handguns before the Supreme Court . . .

"(Mayor) Fenty, a Democrat, did not confirm or deny reports that the attorney general's resignation stemmed from frustration over the mayor's general counsel, Peter Nickles, intruding on the duties of her office."

It would appear that all in DC are not in agreement regarding the Heller/Parker appeal. Reports also had the Brady Campaign practically begging DC officials not to appeal the case out of fear they would lose and have this precedent staring them in the face in courtrooms across the nation. More to come, I'm sure . . .
