The New York Times‘ editorial page editorialized again on the U.S. attorneys scandal yesterday, calling for Congress to compel testimony from high-ranking White House officials about the firings. The editorial included the suggestion that Lam was fired for her prosecution of high-profile Republicans.

The editorial says:

There is reason to believe that Carol Lam of San Diego, who put Randy Cunningham, the former Republican congressman, in jail, and Paul Charlton of Arizona, who was investigating Representative Rick Renzi, among others, were fired simply for their nonpartisan pursuit of justice.
