Perata’s Allies Urge Crackdown on Leaks in FBI Investigation

Apparently fed up with all the embarrassing stories about the federal investigation of Don Perata, three members of Congress have written a letter to US Attorney General Michael Mukasey, urging him to investigate whether federal officials have been leaking details to the press. Representatives John Conyers, Linda Sanchez and Zoe Lofgren all signed the letter, which was obtained by the Los Angeles Times. (Which means somebody leaked it! Hah!) Sadly, the letter doesn’t mention the Express by name, but refers to a Chron story instead. C’mon, Congress guys and gals! Show a scrappy little weekly some love!
