'Main Justice' launches; new site focuses on DOJ policies, politics, personalities

Congrats to my friend and former Roll Call colleague Mary Jacoby, who has just launched Main Justice, a new web-only publication dedicated to covering the U.S. Department of Justice, and nothing but. Mary brings a wealth of reporting experience to the task; she recently left the Washington bureau of the Wall Street Journal, and has also worked at Salon, the St. Petersburg Times, and the Chicago Tribune.

So far the site is focusing largely on the Obama Administration's staffing up of the Department (including admirably obsessive coverage of the Jenner-to-DOJ migration), and has a very interesting piece about a possible conflict involving the special prosecutor appointed to investigate DOJ's handling of the Ted Stevens case. And I predict this U.S. attorney chart, which lists incumbents, as well as actual and potential Obama nominees, will soon become an invaluable web resource.

The site requires free registration, but it's well worth it.
