Something smells fishy...

The WSJ reports:
President Obama swept to office on the promise of a new kind of politics, but then how do you explain last week's dismissal of federal Inspector General Gerald Walpin for the crime of trying to protect taxpayer dollars? This is a case that smells of political favoritism and Chicago rules.
From the little I know about this situation, it sounds like Mr. Walpin was trying to protect taxpayer dollars in a time when taxpayer dollars are flowing out the door so fast that nobody knows where they are ending up! That sounds like sufficient cause for dismissal to me...
