President did not 'follow the law' in IG Firings - McCaskill

Rick Moran
At least one Democratic senator has the integrity to stand up and say that Obama broke the law in firing Inspector General of the Corporation for National and Community Service, Gerald Walpin.

Claire McCaskill (D-MO), lays into Obama in this Jake Tapper piece on ABC's Political Punch:

"The White House has failed to follow the proper procedure in notifying Congress as to the removal of the Inspector General for the Corporation for National and Community Service," McCaskill said. "The legislation which was passed last year requires that the president give a reason for the removal."

McCaskill, a key Obama ally, said that the president's stated reason for the termination, "Loss of confidence' is not a sufficient reason." 

She added that she was "hopeful the White House will provide a more substantive rationale, in writing, as quickly as possible."

A crack in the solid blue wall of Democrats? Not very likely. No doubt, the White House will fine tune their lies about why Walpin was fired and McCaskill will announce that she's satisfied.

But some of the press is on the trail of this story and it has the opportunity to get bigger.
