President Obama Nominates Kenneth Polite To Be Next U.S. Attorney in New Orleans

Thursday, President Obama nominated New Orleans attorney Kenneth Polite to be the next United States Attorney in the city.

Polite is a native New Orleanian.  He is currently working in a private law practice.

Polite was recommended by Senator Mary Landrieu in the wake of Jim Letten’s retirement.

Letten stepped down as U.S. Attorney after prosecutors in his office were accused of posting negative comments regarding cases being handled by their office on the internet.

The United States Senate must approve the nomination.
