Doesn't this seem coincidental ? It's pretty clear that these politicians strayed over the line of what is legally permitted and even more clear that they strayed over the line ethically regardless of whether it was legally actionable.
I am starting to think that these errors on the part of the prosecution teams were not just mistakes - but calculated, with exactly this result in mind. Lets look at it this way...
- the powers that be can say they are tough on corruption
- the Republican party can use this as evidence that they are being unfairly targeted
- the vindicated politicians can use this to revitalize their base and get re-elected
I would really like to see this investigated. Either there is something going on or we have a really badly damaged prosecutorial system that needs to be repaired.
