Democratic senators call on Cheney for 'thorough
housecleaning' as aides in leak scandal are promoted

RAW STORY Exclusive

Democratic Senate leaders Harry Reid (D-NV), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) issued a letter to Vice President Cheney Thursday calling for a "thorough housecleaning" in his office, RAW STORY has learned.

The letter notes that senior Cheney aides named in the Libby indictment are still working -- and in fact both have been promoted.

The aides are David Addington (who was promoted to the Vice President's chief of staff) and John Hannah (was promoted to be his National Security Adviser).
