The exodus of U.S. Attorneys continues around the country with the latest, John F. Wood of the Western District of Missouri, who will step down Saturday to take a job at a Washington Wall Street firm, Hughes Hubbard  & Reed.

Wood, a Bush appointee, began serving in April 2007.
Before becoming U.S. Attorney, he was the chief of staff for U.S. Homeland Security.

During his tenure, his office handled a number of large scale cases including the indictment of two Chinese companies and their top executives for alleged export of tainted pet food ingredients to the U.S.

He has also served on the Attorney General’s advisory committees on Terrorism & National Security and White Collar Crime.

“Service as U.S. Attorney for the Western District has been the highest honor of my professional career,” he said in a prepared statement.
