Alabama and the DOJ Scandal

Pressure is building for Congress to focus on Alabama in the investigation of the Department of Justice (DOJ) scandal.

The latest salvo comes from 44 former state attorneys general who request that Congress look into the prosecution of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman.

Here at Legal Schnauzer, we are pleased to see demands for investigations into politically motivated investigations and prosecutions. But we hope the inquiry will included another component of this scandal--politically motivated coverups.

We are learning more about Democrats, like Siegelman, who may have been prosecuted for political reasons. But what about Republicans who get away with wrongdoing--for political reasons?

Our case here at Legal Schnauzer is a perfect example of this second form of selective prosecution. You might call it prosecutorial neglect. And it appears that Alice Martin, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Alabama and a leading player in the Siegelman saga, is practicing prosecutorial neglect in our saga of corrupt Republican judges and attorneys.

Ms. Martin, and Carmen Adams of the FBI's Birmingham office, have been presented with ample written evidence of the wrongdoing in the Schnauzer case. Are they investigating? If they are, the Schnauzer is not aware of it. And schnauzers don't like being kept in the dark.

Therefore, this schnauzer will keep his nose to the ground and his paws on the keyboard, exposing the "conservative" cockroaches that infest Alabama's state courts. (Schnauzers prefer to go after rats; that's why they call us ratters. But since cockroaches seem to be the problem in Alabama courts, here is one schnauzer reporting for duty, sir!)
