Holder to dismiss case against Ted ‘Intertubes’ Stevens


Hot damn…this would be funny if it wasn’t so freaking pathetic. From the LAT writeup:

Attorney General Eric Holder has concluded that the conviction of Stevens cannot be supported because of problems with the government’s prosecution, which had been openly criticized by the trial judge, National Public Radio first reported.
*snip*
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan had criticized prosecutors for misconduct, and held Justice Department lawyers in contempt last month for failing to turn documents over to him as ordered. He called their behavior “outrageous.”
*snip*
Holder is said to have based his decision on Stevens’ age, the fact that he is no longer in the Senate — and “perhaps most importantly,” because the new attorney general wanted to “send a message” to prosecutors that misconduct will not be tolerated, NPR reported this morning.

Holder started his own career in the Public Integrity section of the Justice Department. The attorney general also knows the trial judge, Sullivan, well – the two served together as superior court judges.

I was afraid this case would be overturned on appeal because of the numerous fuck-ups by the prosecution lawyers..guess we don’t have to wait for that to happen now…Teddy will be a free man shortly…damn it. Ah yes, the Gonzo Justice Dept flunkies struck again!
