Final Warning for Administration
House, Seeking Documents on Firings,
Nears Contempt Vote
By Dan Eggen Paul Kane  Washington Post

The House Judiciary Committee sent a final warning to the White
House yesterday to provide Democrats with access to disputed
documents and testimony, pushing the House closer to a vote on
contempt citations for two administration officials.

In a letter to White House counsel Fred F. Fielding, Judiciary
Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), gave the Bush
administration until Friday to work out a deal on documents and
testimony relating to last year's controversial removal of nine U.S.
attorneys. If Fielding refuses the latest request, the House could vote
as early as next week on the contempt charges, Democratic aides
said.

Exxon ruling likely to keep Alabama races
nation's priciest
by Phillip Rawls of Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama has developed a reputation
for the nation's most expensive Supreme Court races during a 12-
year battle that has changed the court from all Democratic to
overwhelmingly Republican.

Now a decision by the court's Republican justices to throw out nearly
all of a record $3.6 billion verdict against Exxon Mobil has underlined
the fiercely partisan nature of the judicial system in Alabama.

"Justice, as we've seen, is partisan," University of Alabama political
scientist William Stewart, a longtime observer of Alabama politics,
said Tuesday.
