It's impossible to overstate the importance of Scott Horton in the effort to unmask the con men (and women) who have corrupted the Bush Justice Department.
Horton, legal affairs contributor for Harper's magazine, no longer writes daily on his No Comment blog. He is focusing on a number of long-form projects connected to the Justice Department scandal.
We might not read Horton every day at this point, but it was his reporting that led to the major investigative report by 60 Minutes and the ongoing coverage by Dan Abrams' on MSNBC's The Verdict.
Here at Legal Schnauzer, we consider Scott Horton the "E.F. Hutton" of the Bush DOJ scandal. Whenever Horton talks, we listen. And Horton is talking today, presenting an overview of the latest events surrounding the investigation of the Don Siegelman case and other questionable prosecutions around the country. Horton's main message: The prosecution's case against Siegelman appears to be unraveling, and one can only wonder if the same soon will be happening in the Paul Minor case in Mississippi.
