WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has recommended that the White House reappoint the former U.S. Attorney in Nevada who had been among nine prosecutors fired by the Bush administration in an unusual purge more than two years ago.

Daniel Bogden had been a career prosecutor with the Department of Justice before being ousted in the unprecedented firings in 2006. He is being vetted now for his old job, Reid’s office said.

Reid, in an interview this afternoon, said he put Bogden’s name forward after consulting with federal judges and those familiar with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Nevada.

“I didn’t just do this on a whim,” Reid said in his office with Nevada press. “I just think it’s so unfair what happened to him.”

Bogden and the other attorneys were dismissed in 2006 leading to widespread investigations of politicization within the Justice department. President George W. Bush’s Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, stepped down in 2007.
