No, it's not the filmmaker.
The Michael Moore whom President Barack Obama has nominated to be the U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Georgia that includes Columbus is not the guy who made the movies "Bowling for Columbine" or "Fahrenheit 9/11."
He's a lawyer in private practice, "with a broad criminal and civil practice for the last 12 years," according to the White House. He has worked five years in the Houston County district attorney’s office, reaching the rank of chief assistant district attorney. He also was a state senator for a year, 2001-2002. He got his law degree in 1993, from Mercer University.
If confirmed by the Senate, Moore will fill a vacancy left by Max Wood, who resigned July 31.
