National Security v. Politics

The story will be big tomorrow, but you read about it here first.

ABC News Nightline tonight will talk with Clark Kent Ervin, the former Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security.  Ervin will talk about how, just before the Presidential elections in 2004, he was confronted by Tom Ridge and intimidated into toning down his criticisms of the Department (in order to save embarrassment to Bush).

Not much documentation on this story yet, except this ABC news release.
