From the DNC:
In her recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, MonicaGoodling was asked briefly about "caging." Both in her opening remarks andin response to questioning by Linda Sanchez, Goodling said that DeputyAttorney General Paul McNulty knew about the involvement of Acting U.S.Attorney Tim Griffin in "vote caging," a process of systematically removingvoters from the registration rolls. McNulty had previously denied knowingof the scheme. Not mentioned in the testimony is the fact that cagingvoters is a crime.

Goodling told the committee:
-- As explained in more detail in my written remarks, I believe the deputy
was not fully candid about his knowledge of White House involvement in
the replacement decision, failed to disclose that he had some knowledge
of the White House's interest in selecting Tim Griffin as the interim
U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Arkansas, inaccurately
described the department's internal assessment of the Parsky Commission
and failed to disclose that he had some knowledge of allegations that
Tim Griffin had been involved in vote caging during his work on the
president's 2004 campaign.
