Some shuffling at the ATF

Is a bureaucratic shuffle designed to take some heat off Eric Holder over Fast and Furious?

If it is, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) says it won't work.

From the senator:

For Immediate ReleaseWednesday, October 5, 2011

Senator Chuck Grassley made the following statement after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced a restructuring of the key personnel.

“The reassignments are positive, especially in the case of Tom Brandon who I hope can help lead this agency out of its troubles.  But, I caution that rearranging the chairs on the deck, won’t make Fast and Furious go away.  I also question the timing of this announcement.  There is a lot of effort at the Justice Department to spin the fact that the Attorney General was less than candid before the House Judiciary Committee, and what better way to make that go away than a bureaucratic shuffle.   There are a lot of questions that remain to be answered and actions that need to be explained.”

Main Justice has more on who goes where in the ATF shake-up.
