It's not that Henry E. Hudson, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, admits to feeling any pressure. But the man in charge of what some in government believe is the largest fraud investigation in the history of the Pentagon concedes that the relentless newspaper, television and radio accounts of the unfolding scandal have created certain expectations. "I liken myself to a pitcher in the ninth inning," Hudson says, facing "the last batter, with three balls and two strikes."

Operation Ill Wind blew like a hurricane through the homes and offices of Pentagon and defense industry officials over the past two weeks as FBI agents began seizing evidence of what they believe is massive corruption in the $150-billion-a-year Defense Department weapons-buying system. And the investigation is rapidly accumulating a cast of characters almost as vast and varied as the mountains of documents swept up by the FBI.

RICHMOND, Va. -- A Georgia woman doesn't want to see the dogs seized from Michael Vick's Surry County property die. Instead, Bernadette Allen, of Roswell, wants them to be neutered and have their teeth removed so they are no longer a threat, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Richmond Friday. The U.S. attorney's office filed for custody of the dogs after they were seized from the property when it was searched in April.

Virginia's Republican attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli, challenged the law by rejecting the federal government's view that the mandate is enforceable under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.
