Enzi & Hatch request Hearing over Obama's Dismissal of AmeriCorps IG

Sens. Mike Enzi and Orrin Hatch on Monday asked Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee, to conduct a congressional hearing over the recent firing of the National Service Agency's inspector general, Gerald Walpin:
"We have asked for information from the White House counsel and CNCS, but they have not been forthcoming to date nor willing to commit to a time frame," the senators said in a letter to Kennedy.

A Kennedy spokeswoman, Melissa Wagoner, said the senator's office was reviewing the request.
