Does Chuck Schumer Need To Be Investigated While We're Looking Into the U.S. Attorneys Being Fired?

The RS Insider thinks there are two points on this US Attorney story that would make Democrats sweat bullets -- if the media takes the ball and runs with it, that is:
1) The Voter Fraud Defense: a couple US Attorneys were let go, in part, for failing to investigate voter fraud. This is not – or should not be – an area of partisan dispute. The RS Insider distinctly recalls Democrats getting very worked up about potential voter and election fraud when it affected them. So, why are Democrats defending a US Attorney who was let go for performance problems like a failure to pursue election fraud? And for that matter, why do Democrats think a President shouldn’t be free to fire US Attorney’s who don’t pursue immigration enforcement,
2) See if you can follow this: Senator Schumer is using his role on the Judiciary Committee to push an investigation that he can use – and is using (pdf) – to benefit Democratic campaigns. Senator Schumer is investigating the charge that Republicans attempted to use their position to push investigations that would benefit Republican campaigns.
Perhaps somebody should follow this up with an investigation of Senator Schumer: why is the
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee charged with investigating this using his position to press an investigation that he’s using to benefit his own Democratic Party campaigns?
