At this point in the second term of a lame duck President, the Congress has usually had it up to here with a few of the leading characters in the Administration, and this one is no different.
On Tuesday, three Democrat Senators called for the resignation of EPA Chief Stephen Johnson, accusing him of letting political pressure dictate environmental decisions, rather than the facts of the case.
Today, Democrats will be sure to use a hearing on the Justice Department to highlight how political considerations interfered with the hiring of career prosecutors there during the time that Alberto Gonzales was Attorney General.
"It is a screaming warning sign that something very bad has gone wrong," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI,) who both called for the EPA chief's resignation and demanded accountability when it comes to former top aides to Gonzales.
On the Justice Department matter, the Senate Judiciary Committee will get a review today of an internal investigation that found misdeeds by several Gonzales aides.
Inspector General Glenn Fine will detail his probe, which found that politics wrongly played a role in hiring decisions for non-political jobs.
Many fingers will be pointed at Monica Goodling, who refused to cooperate with Fine's investigation.
The probe found that Goodling rejected one highly qualified job seeker, simply because his wife was active in politics on the Democratic side.
It's not clear if anyone will be charged with civil service law violations, but that isn't out of the question.
All of this stemmed from the investigation into the firing of a group of US attorneys, for what looked like political considerations.
At this point, Democrats don't really need any more election year ammunition to argue to voters why a change is needed in the White House - they have so much, they can barely fit it all into their stump speeches.
