WASHINGTON, DC – President Obama today nominated the following individuals as United States Attorneys:
• Daniel G. Bogden, District of Nevada
• Deborah K. Gilg, District of Nebraska
• Timothy J. Heaphy, Western District of Virginia
• Peter F. Neronha, District of Rhode Island
The White House - Press Office - President Obama Nominates Four U.S. Attorneys
If the first name sounds familiar it's because he was that districts U. S. Attorney before being fired by the Bush administration.
Bogden was part of the controversial U. S. Attorneys firings/resignations that prompted allegations of impropriety and set off investigations.
“I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.” - George W. Bush
I say again, this is a NON-STORY. It was a non-story then, and it's even more irrelevant now.
I'm sorry that so many of you now have such a deep and painful void in your lives, now that Bush isn't around to feed that seething hatred that's been the center of your existence for so many years, but drudging up phony scandals from the past isn't doing you any good.
It's time to let go... If you don't have the strength and willpower to do this on your own, I recommend you attend group counseling, or find the nearest mental health facility and seek their advice on how to get your life back together.
Hatred will destroy your life, and the lives of those around you.
Dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaPresident Carter replaced U.S. Attorney David Marston at the request of Democratic Representative Joshua Eilberg. Marston had been investigating corruption charges against Eilberg and Daniel Flood, another Democratic Representative. The probe continued after the attorney was replaced, however, and Eilberg lost his 1978 reelection bid. Eilberg was eventually sentenced to five years probation and a $10,000 fine, and Flood was censured for bribery by 96th United States Congress.
Furthermore, this of course assumes:
1) That was the reason the prosecutors were fired,
2) There was no reasonable legal basis for the vote fraud case, and
3) The reason for pursuing the vote fraud case was because of political considerations rather than a desire to see the law enforced.
There's absolutely nothing indicating that those three conditions are satisfied.
What has happened here is that things have been turned on their head. If this were truly about investigating a crime, this "investigation" would have been dropped once they realized that the vote fraud cases were not patently ludicrous. Instead, the "investigation" has continued on in an attempt to dig up more circumstantial evidence to prove tangential points.
Absolutely no evidence that this happened."Concerns about the apparently political nature of these firings are only heightened by the emerging allegations that some U.S. Attorneys who were retained by the Department - the so-called "loyal Bushies" - may have selectively prosecuted Democrats. Bringing the force of the federal criminal justice apparatus to bear on an individual based in any way on that person's political affiliation is a clear abuse of the prosecutorial function, and may well violate the person's civil rights.
Revisiting, and re-debunking, the political profiling study | Stubborn Facts"Evidence that such wrongdoing may have occurred includes a recent academic study finding that federal prosecutors during the Bush Administration have indicted Democratic officeholders far more frequently than their Republican counterparts. The study's authors found that of the 375 cases they identified, 10 involved independents, 67 involved Republicans, and 298 involved Democrats, and noted that local Democrats were seven times as likely as Republicans to be subject to criminal charges from the Department of Justice."
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
So, since the House, Senate and Presidency are now inhabited by Bush's political opponents, one would expect that if they had a case, they'd make it. They don't, even under the forceful demands of their emotionality overwrought minions.
So any person of reasonalbe intelligence if forced to conclude that they have no case.
Time to move on or risk being medicated.
