No comments on report McCoy nomination “has foundered”

It’s no comments all around on a published report that Oxford lawyer Christy McCoy’s U.S. Attorney nomination “has foundered.”

According to the Washington publication Main Justice, for the first time in this administration, Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys nominated by President Barack Obama outnumber those by his predecessor, President George W. Bush.

But McCoy’s candidacy is sidetracked, it said, because “Republicans raised questions” about her connections to a private investigator under investigation for allegedly padding his bills and submitting false claims. McCoy and other Mississippi defense lawyers used the man to look into cases handled by their practices.
