Morgan Griffith wants full FBI investigation of political appointments

griffithCongressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today issued the following statement after sending a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Director James Comey regarding reports that the fbi is investigating the June 8 resignation of Virginia State Senator Phillip Puckett:

“Many instances have occurred at both the federal and the state level involving both Republican and Democrat elected officials in which resignations have been tendered and suitable appointments extended for political purposes, and there have never been any inklings of federal scrutiny.  I am stunned by reports that the fbi has opened an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Senator Puckett’s resignation, and am deeply concerned that this particular investigation is politically motivated.”

“If it is not politically motivated, then why isn’t the FBI investigating President Obama, Senator Kaine, Senator Warner, and former Governor Gilmore and their appointees as well?”
