Patterico's Pontifications


Patterico’s Assignment Desk (Part 2)

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:01 pm

Undaunted by the poor showing in response to my first assignment, I am issuing a second assigment to you lazy bastards.

Those U.S. Attorneys who were fired — were they the only ones in the country conducting political prosecutions?

Other than Patrick Fitzgerald, who wasn’t fired.

As far as I can tell, the Administration also failed to fire the folks who successfully prosecuted Jack Abramoff or Bob Ney. (Correct me if I’m wrong.) Hell, this guy is still getting convictions.

(But, because every point for the Republicans seems to have a counterpoint — we also have the other guy who investigated Abramoff, who was fired.)

Facts and links, folks. Facts and links.

  4. This US attorney
    In January 2006, Brett M. Pfeffer, a former aide to Jefferson, implicated him in a corruption scheme involving an Internet company being set up in Nigeria. Pfeffer was president of an investment company in McLean, Virginia. In return for political support for the deal, Jefferson had legal work directed toward his family’s operations. It was also said that a daughter of his was put on retainer of the Virginia investment company to the tune of $5,000 a month. Jefferson also is said to have arranged for his family a 5% to 7% ownership stake in the Nigerian Internet company. Pfeffer pled guilty to charges of aiding and abetting bribery of a public official and conspiracy on 11 January 2006 in a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.[12] On May 26, he was sentenced to eight years, but was “cooperating in an ongoing probe and may be eligible for a sentence reduction afterward”, according to a prosecutor.[13]

  11. I think the question is are any pursuing corruption cases against Republicans. I don’t believe crusades against Democrats are a problem.

  12. I think the question is are any pursuing corruption cases against Republicans.

    Like Fitzgerald. Or (quoting the post) “the folks who successfully prosecuted Jack Abramoff or Bob Ney.”
