More dirt on Attorneygate, from Wisconsin
This is really rich–the Busheviki searching high and low for evidence of
Democratic “voter fraud” in Wisconsin: where, in 2004,l there had been copious
election fraud committed by the GOP, in (as far as we know now ) Madison,
Milwaukee, Kenosha and Racine. (See my Fooled Again, pp. 141-42, 187-88.)
Making Sense of the Georgia Thompson Ruling
April 12, 2007
Thursday’s ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, which immediately freed former state worker Georgia Thompson, was a stunner. Not only did the three federal judges immediately give Thompson her freedom, but they also delivered a smack-down to the Milwaukee office of U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic, calling the evidence in the case “beyond thin.”
So how did that happen? Why would a prosecutor, working on the taxpayers’ dime, press charges when the evidence was negligible? Why did a jury convict based on that same evidence? And why was Thompson given the unusual punishment of going to federal prison while her case was being appealed?
Why? Because the political climate-in George W. Bush’s America, in Wisconsin and in Milwaukee, in particular, where the case was decided-is so poisoned by political games that the jury sent a message that wasn’t based on the evidence introduced in the courtroom.
