Congressional Hearing on favoritism in the awarding of Justice Department contracts

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Committee has rescheduled its hearing on alleged favoritism by the Justice Department’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in awarding more than a quarter of a billion in grants each year. The committee has not only summoned J. Robert Flores, the administrator of OJJDP, but also asked Scott Peterson, the former OJJDP staffer who spoke on the record for the Nightline story that I worked on about the agency, to testify as well. 

Meanwhile, Spencer Ackerman has written an open letter to the Attorney General about what he thinks about all of this.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal weighs in.
