Calif. reps' brother missing; boat wreckage found
2 hours ago
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — California U.S. Reps. Loretta and Linda Sanchez say their brother Henry and his girlfriend are missing after an apparent boating accident off Southern California.
The sisters say in a statement issued Friday that a debris field found off the coast contained fragments from the boat their brother was aboard with his girlfriend, Penny Avila.
The Coast Guard says Henry Sanchez and his girlfriend left Alamitos Bay near Long Beach late Wednesday or early Thursday en route to Santa Catalina Island and never arrived.
Ensign Stephanie Young says the debris was found about five miles south of the Los Angeles harbor entrance at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.
Independence of prosecutor questioned by Democrats
By LARRY MARGASAK – 2 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic lawmakers on Friday questioned the independence of a veteran federal prosecutor named to investigate whether laws were broken in the partisan political firings of U.S. attorneys.
Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., who has led the House Judiciary Committee's investigation into the firing of nine prosecutors nearly two years ago, said the Justice Department might interfere with the career prosecutor who will conduct the probe.
Nora Dannehy — the acting U.S. attorney in Connecticut and white-collar crime specialist — was named early this week by Attorney General Michael Mukasey to continue an inquiry that so far has found incompetent, unethical and possibly criminal conduct surrounding the firings.
Mukasey assigned Dannehy to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, his former top aides or White House officials who might have played a role in the dismissals but refused to cooperate in an internal investigation of the scandal.

Rep. Sanchez: Rove Should Go to Jail
@ 11:59 am by Andy Barr
Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) thinks former White House adviser Karl Rove should go to jail after ignoring a subpoena seeking his appearance at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.
Asked on MSNBC if Rove should go to jail if he continues to not cooperate with the House panel's investigation, Sanchez said, "I personally believe, yes, absolutely. Anybody who scoffs at the law and who has committed an offense that is punishable by jail time should be put in jail."
"I would like to see him held accountable for his complete disregard of the law absolutely," Sanchez said.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's ban on short-selling of financial stocks will end next week, following the government's approval of a $700 billion financial industry rescue package.
