Is there a law they haven't broken?

Yet another in a string by this administration and its minions:

"Senior aides to former Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales broke Civil Service laws by using politics to guide their hiring decisions, picking less-qualified applicants for important nonpolitical positions, slowing the hiring process at critical times and damaging the department’s credibility, an internal report concluded on Monday."

What I'd like to know is, why has it taken this long for it to come out that they broke the law? Wasn't it obvious when Goodling was fired and Gonzales stepped down that they'd used their positions to push their political agendas, and that this was in clear violation of the law? Remember the screaming when then Vice President Al Gore was being investigated for making some fundraising calls from his office? That was wrong, but now, apparently, it's okay, at least as far as conservatives are concerned, to keep qualified applicants out of jobs because there's a rumor they might be gay, because their spouse is a Democrat, or because, in one case, they express their admiration for Condoleeza Rice. Never mind that Rice doesn't breathe without orders from her "husband", George Bush. Goodling has a problem with the fact that Rice is pro-choice, and therefore anyone who says anything positive about her must be unqualified to serve.

If there are any laws they haven't broken, it's only because they don't know about them...
