U.S. Attorney quit job in Minnesota and will return to Washington, D.C.
The Star Tribune reported that U.S. Attorney Rachel Paulose has quit her job in Minnesota and will return to Washington, D.C., in January. Paulose plans to take a job as a legal policy advisor to Attorney General Michael Mukasey and his deputy.
The Bush administration chose Paulose to take over U.S. Attorney Tom Heffelfinger's position after he recently resigned a month ago, reported the Star Tribune.
Senator Norm Coleman recommended Paulose, and she was approved by the Senate. However, her past, Republican credentials and initial selection by the administration made her a suspect as a GOP loyalist, the Star Tribune reported.
