Dispatches from District 48
A corrupt politician is taking all the other losers down with her. This is great.
So after she finished her hit job on the Corbett Administration, her own side is hanging her out to dry. I love it, but, probably not for the same reason.
A couple things are striking...
1) A high ranking Law Enforcement official seems to have been able to carry out a wide scoped sweeping investigation (fishing expedition?) and gather information that seems (?) entirely unrelated to the (Sandusky) case.
2) That same high ranking official, with access to that apparent extraneous information, felt justified in leveraging for personal gain (in this case to avoid her own prosecution).
Is it just me, or does there appear to be this steady drip, drip, drip of cases where those enforcing the law play fast an loose with those laws for their own purpose?

Not sure there is much to celebrate here, other than maybe folks will see it all and wonder about what kind of people are we entrusting much power to. Maybe.
Yeah, but this crap happens anyway. As long as we're dealing with that it's fun to watch them eat their own. For once.
While calumny is legal, it is still sin.
It's about as "fun" as watching a dog fight.
Only, these people may be getting what they deserve. The dogs deserve better.
Look at it this way: it's a pretty efficient way to get rid of a lot of very corrupt people. I can see some upside in that.
Well, that they deserve what they get, yes, it is upside, for sure.
