U.S. Sen. David Vitter issued the following statement today following President Obama's nomination of Stephanie Finley as U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana:
"I congratulate Ms. Finley on her nomination. But I also again ask the president to directly address the need that Jim Letten continue to serve as U.S. attorney in the Eastern District to continue his vital prosecutions of political corruption," said Vitter. "Both Senator Landrieu and I fully support this, as do Louisianians of all walks of life. Let's confirm that he'll be there and move forward with the president's other nominations."
