Patterico's Pontifications


David Sirota Is A Racist

The word he? Racist. We? Racist. Us versus them? Super racist.

The entire thing is so far beyond parody, but it is the norm for Sirota.

Post racial post partisan wannabe dictator must not be questioned or criticized.

Louisiana U.S. Attorney Resigns; Prosecuted O’Keefe

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:45 am

His office prosecuted James O’Keefe. Now Jim Letten is resigning amid a scandal involving his office:

Letten’s move follows an ongoing scandal over anonymous Internet comments made by two of Letten’s top aides on a website for the newspaper concerning matters related to their work. One top prosecutor resigned earlier this year after a subject of the comments hired a skilled investigator, identified him and filed a defamation suit. The other top prosecutor was demoted as an investigation by the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility continues.

Meanwhile, at the end of last month, as an earlier Times-Picayune article details, a federal judge issued what the newspaper describes as a “tartly worded” order calling for investigation of possible leaks by Letten’s office concerning its prosecution of law enforcement officers over a fatal shooting of apparently unarmed civilians on the Danziger Bridge in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

If it’s an effort to avoid further investigation, I hope it fails.
