Change in U.S. Attorney’s office


B. Todd Jones, nominated by President Obama as the next U.S. attorney for Minnesota, says there will be changes for the office. Jones served as U.S. attorney during the Clinton administration. During the Bush administration, Minnesota’s U.S. attorney’s office was among those making headlines for partisanship. The PiPress quotes Jones:

“There’s a different approach that emerging. Some of the things that were neglected the past eight years are coming back to the forefront here. There’s a lot of work to be done,” he said. “A lot of work to be done.”
