Klobuchar wants answers on Heffelfinger

From the Associated Press:

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar wants the Senate Judiciary Committee to ask more in-depth questions about why former U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Tom Heffelfinger may have been targeted for removal.

A story in today's Los Angeles Times says Heffelfinger was targeted because he worked to protect the voting rights of American Indians in Minnesota.

Klobuchar wrote a letter to Sen. Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, asking the panel to closely question former Bush Justice Department appointee Bradley Schlozman.

Schlozman is scheduled to testify before the committee next Tuesday. According to the L-A Times, Schlozman stopped Heffelfinger's investigation into concerns that American Indians living outside reservations could not use their tribal I-D cards to vote.
