The Defendant was convicted which is embarrassing as it is unfair. The Broward SAO and one particular female BSO Officer remain steadfast and unbowed in their attempt to rid the world of self gratification. They may as well use tweezers to clear Florida beaches of sand while they’re at it. Perhaps the Broward SAO’s lack of prosecutorial discretion, which those of us in the criminal defense community have known about for years, now on public…ahem.. display for all to see, may be the first chink in the armor of long time State Attorney Mike Satz.
Meanwhile, in Dade County, Corrections officials were shocked! Shocked ! to learn that the man accused of killing the bondsman trying to apprehend him, was left in a Van in sweltering heat for hours at TGK after returning from court. The Herald article is HERE
And finally, the Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, gave testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, in which he, in effect, called the Attorney General of the United States a liar.
The Attorney General testified earlier in the week that when he was White House Counsel, he and his top assistant decided “on the spur of the moment” to race to the hospital bedside of then attorney General John Ashcroft to “bring him some flowers and candy, and if he felt up to it, have him renew our program allowing the government to spy on its citizens. But only if he was really feeling jolly.”
Muller has never adequately explained why he felt it necessary to order FBI agents to prevent Gonzalez and Bush henchman Andrew Card from removing deputy attorney General Comey, who was also present, from Ashcroft’s room.
“Gonzalez and Card love to sneak candy” said an unidentified White House spokesman. We believe Director Mueller was justifiably concerned that those two knuckleheads would chow down all of Ashcroft’s candy. You know how those guys get when their wives let them out at night.”
Somehow, we just don’t buy it.
The administration would be well advised to remember that it's members do not fair well when charged with perjury. There is a growing belief that the Attorney General may well have walked himself into a perjury trap before the Senate. With the federal guidelines being as unfair as they are for obstruction of justice, he apparently has little to worry about in terms of prison time.
Broward is concerned about the front side of what’s in a person’s pants, while the Attorney General of the United States acts like the backside.
See You In Court.
