Harriet Miers resigns as White House counsel
As detailed in this AP article, "Harriet Miers, President Bush's failed Supreme Court nominee, has submitted her resignation as White House counsel, the White House announced Thursday." As noted in the posts below from the period when she was a Supreme Court nominee, Miers has an interesting history with some criminal justice issues:
- Nominee Miers' 1992 discussion of crime and punishment
- Exploring Miers' work in support of prisoner re-entry
- Will a Justice Miers continue to be a vocal advocate for better funding of indigent defense?
- Will the MSM ever look at Miers and criminal justice issues?
- Miers, religion, and criminal justice issues

Anon: if you read the links, you will see lots of sentencing discussion in the prior work by Miers, as well as evidence that she pushed the Bush administration to embrace reentry issues.

Perhaps the bigger question is what does Harriet Miers know and could her conscience compel her to testify?
