I am pleased that my colleagues in the U.S. Senate have confirmed Dan Bogden to once again serve as the U.S. attorney for Nevada," Reid said. "Dan is an experienced prosecutor who worked hard for Nevada before being wrongly fired. He has served Nevada with distinction in the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General's Office, the Washoe County District Attorney's Office, and the United States Attorney's office, where he eventually rose to the position of chief of the Reno division. During his first term as US attorney, Dan was fired for refusing to bow to political pressure. By reinstating him the White House is ensuring that this dedicated public servant will continue to keep federal prosecutions in Nevada free from political bias.
