There seems to be glaring but not surprising omission from that article that an astute reader might want to know.

Main stream media would never take sides on party lines.

This must have been an honest omission. :shock:

No search was necessary.....Baltimore Mayor = Democrat no matter if a dead person would run!

The screaming about how a Republican state prosecutor did the investigation will start shortly I'm sure.

Funny how all these federal investigations seem to target DEMOCRATS!
Any corrupt official deserves to be jailed but this appears to be another politically motivated misuse of OUR Justice Dept! :mad: (& deserves an investigation itself as to who chose the targets & why, as soon as the new Atty General takes office)
These investigations don't pass my "Smell Test."

I do not believe that any one party has the exclusive on " SKANK" behavior. Statistically speaking, there are bound to be
more democrats only because there are more of them overall. Scum is after all an equal opportunity employer! ;)

Dev,
Was thinking you must have been on vacation or sumpin, tada! there you is :lol:

My favorite is the democrat Jefferson from New Orleans who was under investigation for money laundering and turned up with $100,000 in cash in his freezer. I bet those scanky rich republicans put it there just to get him in trouble!! Same guys that padlocked all those school buses so democrat mayor Ray Nagin couldn't get the folks out ahead of Katrina :lol: :lol:

It's possible that this is just coincidence, but if I was the new Atty General on 1/21/2009 I would want to look into:
1. Who started these investigations? (over 2 years ago)
2. Was there any political guidance given &, if so, by whom? (sounds like this was started when Al Gonzales was AG)
3. What criteria was used for target selection?

First they'll blame republicans and then she'll play the race card. Don't get too worked up about this one Devil, she's probably going to be convicted.

I live in an all democrat county. The feds are investigating. This wasn't initiated on the behalf of the republican party. The fact is the county is run by a bunch of blatantly corrupt thieves who happen to belong to the Democratic party. Corrupt politicians come in both genders, all colors and from both parties. I think it's time some of these corrupt politicians are executed for treason against the American people. Guaranteed that would cut down on corruption ten fold.

It is pretty obvious it is politically driven, after all politicians are involved!!!

I believe the state prosecutor is a state level appointment/office, not federal. So any "encouragement" probably came from the governors office, not Gonzales.

I agree completely, but I just don't feel comfortable with Alberto Gonzales's Justice Dept initiating these investigations without having some serious questions answered. I think any prudent citizen should not take anything this administration says as true, without verification.
Any corrupt politician is a sleazeball & deserves prison time. I just want to make sure that the motivations for these investigations was non-partisan.

Well, because of the Constitution, all parties will get a chance to tell their stories to the judge. So even with the worst
intentions, it still has to go before a judge and jury. Ya Ya, they can fire judges, but not quickly.
