Is it watergate yet?

I’m likely the only blog­ger on the right who hasn’t writ­ten on project gun­run­ner but now we have the final par­al­lel to water­gate:

The agent, Vince Cefalu, who has spo­ken out about the ATF’s so-​called “Project Gun­run­ner” scan­dal, says he was served with ter­mi­na­tion papers just last week, and he calls the move polit­i­cally motivated.

It gets worse:

And two days before Cefalu was served with ter­mi­na­tion papers, Rep. Dar­rell Issa, R-​Calif., chair­man of the House Com­mit­tee on Over­sight and Gov­ern­ment Reform, sent a let­ter to the ATF warn­ing offi­cials not to retal­i­ate against whistleblowers.

ATF spokesman Drew Wade denied in a state­ment to FoxNews​.com that the bureau is retal­i­at­ing, but he declined to com­ment about Cefalu’s case. “ATF will not com­ment on spe­cific, ongo­ing per­son­nel mat­ters. It is ille­gal to use dis­ci­pli­nary actions to retal­i­ate against employ­ees, and ATF does not engage in such improper reprisals.”

I’m unsure if it took place on a Sat­ur­day Night.

It gets worse:

And two days before Cefalu was served with termination papers, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to the ATF warning officials not to retaliate against whistleblowers.

ATF spokesman Drew Wade denied in a statement to FoxNews.com that the bureau is retaliating, but he declined to comment about Cefalu’s case. “ATF will not comment on specific, ongoing personnel matters. It is illegal to use disciplinary actions to retaliate against employees, and ATF does not engage in such improper reprisals.”

I’m unsure if it took place on a Saturday Night.
