Justice Department lawyer accused of partisanship resigns

By Greg Gordon McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Former acting civil rights chief and U.S. attorney Bradley Schlozman, who was a central figure in the controversy over alleged partisan decision-making in the Bush Justice Department, has resigned, a department spokesman said Wednesday.
While acting chief of the department's civil rights division in the latter half of 2005, Schlozman allegedly drove liberal-leaning employees from the unit and hired partisans to replace them.
Later, during his one-year stint as interim U.S. attorney for Kansas City, he allegedly brought politically motivated vote-fraud indictments days before the 2006 elections.
After he was replaced as U.S. attorney by John Wood last spring, Schlozman was shifted to a senior post in the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys at Justice Department headquarters.
On Wednesday, department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse confirmed a report, first circulated by the Internet blog TPM Muckraker, that Schlozman had left that post on his own volition. He declined to elaborate.
Schlozman becomes at least the sixth department official to resign in the wake of a furor over partisanship that grew from last year's firing of nine U.S. attorneys. He couldn't be reached for comment...................
