Karma is a beautiful thing.

According to NPR, FBI agents have raided the offices and home of Special Counsel Scott J. Bloch, who oversees protection for federal whistleblowers, as part of an investigation into retaliating against employees disloyal to Bush and obstructing an investigation.

Readers may remember Bloch from his long anti-gay record and close ties to many anti-gay hate groups. More after the jump...

According to the Washington Blade:

Almost immediately after starting work at OSC, Bloch removed all references to OSC's role in addressing sexual orientation discrimination cases from the OSC Web site and from OSC discrimination complaint forms. Bloch initially said he did not believe OSC had legal authority to adjudicate gay cases, despite assertions by legal experts that existing federal law barred sexual orientation discrimination in the federal workforce.

In response to complaints by members of Congress, the White House issued a statement saying President Bush stands behind the Clinton administration policy of prohibiting workplace discrimination against gay federal employees. Bloch responded by saying he would abide by this policy, but the gay federal workers group GLOBE has said Bloch has failed to take adequate steps to do so.

Well it seems Bloch's chickens have come home to roost. The man in charge of investigating whistleblower complaints is accused of obstructing justice?

Sometimes, you can't write these Bush administration downfalls any better...

"So, how did you end up in Hell" asked the devil.

"Well," he replied fearfully, "I was a Washington based attorney..."

"Stop right there! I don't need to know any more!"
