No Fast & Furious question in debate, but case back in spotlight, anyway

Operation Fast and Furious did not come up during last night’s final presidential debate, but it is definitely in the spotlight this morning as the two Capitol Hill lawmakers responsible for investigating the gun walking scandal are now asking for an update, and they’ve set a deadline tomorrow to get that information.

Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Darrell Issa sent a letter last Friday to B. Todd Jones, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, asking for an update on the dual employment of William McMahon at ATF and J.P. Morgan Chase bank. The lawmakers note that they asked about this issue two months ago and have yet to get a response.

This column discussed the McMahon case back on Aug. 22. He is one of the key figures named in the Inspector General’s report on the mismanaged operation, which allowed some 2,000 guns to be illegally “walked” into the hands of criminals in Mexico. On Sept. 20, this column provided details on the IG report’s criticisms of various officials. That report asserted that “McMahon’s oversight of the Phoenix Field Division’s handling of Operation Fast and Furious was wholly inadequate.”

“At the same time ATF appears to be helping one of the supervisors responsible for Fast and Furious double-dip at taxpayer expense, it apparently has no qualms about pursuing a personnel action against the man who blew the whistle on Fast and Furious, Special Agent John Dodson,” the Oct. 19 letter states. “An ATF Internal Affairs e-mail sent this week notified Special Agent Dodson that it had opened and closed an internal investigation against him. The notice, however, failed to disclose to him any details of the investigation…Special Agent Dodson’s counsel has not been afforded an opportunity to review the report.”
