Busy week coming up for Waxman's committee

Everyone is so focused on Alberto Gonzales' testimony on Tuesday that it's easy to lose sight of the fact that the Bush adminstration is dogged by dozens of scandals, at least three or four of which are on a par with Watergate.

Here's what's on tap for Henry Waxman's Committee on Oversight and Government Reform:
Is This Any Way to Treat Our Troops - Part II: Follow Up on Corrective Measures at Walter Reed -- National Security and Foreign Affairs
Tuesday, April 17, 2007, 10:00:00 AM, in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building

The U.S. Postal Service: 101 -- Federal Workforce, Postal Service, and the District of Columbia
Tuesday, April 17, 2007, 10:00:00 AM, in 2247 Rayburn House Office Building

Unanswered Questions Regarding the Administration's Claims that Iraq Sought Uranium from Niger, White House treatment of Classified Information, the Appointment of Ambassador Jones as "Special Coordinator" for Iraq, and Other Subjects -- Full Committee
Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 10:00:00 AM, in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building

Ensuring Fairness and Accuracy in Elections Involving Electronic Voting Systems -- Information Policy, Census, and National Archives
Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 2:00:00 PM, in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building

The Contractor Tax Enforcement Act and Amendments to Title 31 of the United States Code -- Government Management, Organization, and Procurement
Thursday, April 19, 2007, 10:00:00 AM, in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building[1]
Henry Waxman has gotten more oversight done in a few weeks than Tom Davis was able to accomplish over the course of several years.
