Alabama Is Not the Only State Where Obama Has Helped Persecute Members of His Own Party
As a resident of Alabama, I’ve been operating under the assumption that ours is the only state where the Obama Justice Department has shown utter ineptitude on the appointment of U.S. attorneys. But I was wrong about that.
Leura Canary, the abominable George W. Bush appointee who ramrodded the Don Siegelman prosecution in the Middle District of Alabama, stayed on for more than two years of Obama’s term. That allowed her to be at the controls for a federal bingo case that targeted mostly Democrats and produced zero convictions.
I figured the White House let the Canary debacle continue because the president knows he never is going to win a deep red state, and therefore does not care what happens in Alabama. But it turns out that Obama let a similar situation fester in North Carolina, a state that he won in 2008.
