Enid Greene, Disgusted

By the AG pick. Go figure.

President-elect Barack Obama's pick for attorney general, Eric Holder, is being slammed as a "lawbreaking opportunist" by a Utahn who says she knows Holder's tactics firsthand: former U.S. Rep. Enid Greene Mickelsen.

Holder was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in the mid-'90s, when then-Rep. Enid Greene Waldholtz's personal life and political career spectacularly imploded, and prosecutors spent nearly a year investigating potential bank fraud and campaign law violations by her and her estranged husband, Joe Waldholtz.

Waldholtz was convicted and sent to prison; the congresswoman was eventually cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

Still, Mickelsen - who quickly divorced Waldholtz and recently remarried - carries a grudge against Holder. She said during her KSL radio show that she was "absolutely appalled, infuriated and disgusted" that Obama would pick Holder to be his attorney general.
Hold on to that resentment, Enid. It's becoming.
