    Kenneth Melson , the man who led the controversial Fast and Furious anti-gun-trafficking operation will step down as the interim head of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Justice Department announced Tuesday as it named a new acting director for the agency.

    Melson’s replacement is B. Todd Jones, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota. Jones “is a demonstrated leader who brings a wealth of experience to this position,” Holder said. “I have great confidence that he will be a strong and steady influence guiding ATF in fulfilling its mission of combating violent crime by enforcing federal criminal laws and regulations in the firearms and explosives industries.”

    Whoops, some idiot double posted about this right after you! :embarassed:

    At least there is some fallout with this. Sounds like several agencies were involved though.

    Did you ever see that shill game where a con artist puts a ball under one of three cups and then moves them around and has you guess where the ball is located?

    It looks like the same thing is going on here. Melson is not out of a job, he's just been reassigned....
