DOJ Totally Corrupt - Scholzman Quits


OK, I'm an NPR junkie. I love Nina Totenberg. Her insight into the Supreme Court and legal issues is amazing. So, when I hear her voice on KCUR, I perk up.
I was shocked this morning to hear Nina Totenberg talking about the Western District of Missouri, our former US Attorney Brad Scholzman, our fired US Attorney Todd Graves and the corruption in the Department of Justice. Brad Scholzman is resigning, the latest in a long list of political hacks going day as the corruption scandal spreads through the Department of Justice.
Its amazing how the Republican scandals make even some Republicans look "normal." Take Ashcroft - on death's door in a hospital bed - standing up to Gonzales to stop illegal wiretaps. Ashcroft - of all the Republican radicals - appears "normal" compared to Rove/Bush/Gonzales Now, take Todd Graves - brother of Congressman Sam Graves - getting fired from being a US Attorney. Why fire Todd Graves - because he wouldn't go after Democrats and ACORN. Well, Scholzman would, so they brought him into KC, he filed charges and "It surprised me," Graves said in June. "It surprised me that they'd been filed that close to an election." Some may say that the political objectives of the Scholzman caused the prosecution of Shields. So, Todd Graves looks almost "normal."
The arrogance of the current occupant of the White House is amazing. Why fire the brother of a congressman (unless Sam Graves is hated by Kit Bond) and then lie about it? Why send in Kit Bond's relative to take over the US Attorney's Office (unless he needs his resume built up a little more so he can run for Kit's job)? Why turn one of the most respected organizations on the face of the Earth - the US Dept. of Justice - into political hacks? Why would President Bush - but for an inner party feud - take Congressman Graves and Senator Bond to breakfast at the Corner Cafe in Riverside (always ask them to bring out the biscuits or rolls first, they are great as an appetizer)? Does Bush think some scrambled eggs can fix the anger over Kit Bond quasi-endorsing Mayor Barnes in her race against Graves?

Actually, Bad Boy Brad has been the poster boy for political corruption of the Justice Department in the media on both coasts and in Congress -- everywhere but KC, where the Star shows no interest in the guy. Perhaps they are embarrassed, having invested so much front-page ink in his activities.

Maybe Rep. Conyers will be able to uncover a bit more. I know that the Feds are loathe to part with their interoffice memos on political prosecution. Guess why.

Schlozman and Gonzales can be summerized in one line: These are the guys who will abuse their power do the things that Todd Graves and John Ashcroft would refuse as unconstitutional, unreasonable and dishonorable.

Nice to see someone in KC noticing.

Check out the blog about this over at http://firedupmissouri.com regarding the KC Star's coverage of this. I have already sent them a letter. Its emabraasing the amountof coverage this is not getting.

Strange ass world where Cardarella starts to make sense. Kraske - where's your article on this issue? If Todd Graves wouldn't go after Phil and his wife, why not look at why "bad boy brad's" political prosecution makes no sense?

Actually anon, Graves did go after Sheilds. But Bill Waris took the bullet. That is why he is on Federal Probation.

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the 9Dragons gold, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I spend a lot of 9 Dragons gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to buy 9 Dragons gold to equip us to become strong.Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of cheap 9Dragons gold for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience.I have a lot of 9Dragons money and I want to give her in the game.

Even it got me crazy enough to buy Guild Wars Prophecies with some my own GuildWars Gold and Nightfall and Eye of the North. I wonder to know why are not you guys and gals who like the PVP concept buying this awesome game. okey, it is expensive to buy gw gold all parts. If you lack the GuildWars money, but it is worth it and no monthly costs and the game gets updated weekly at least. Once again, if anyone wants to play Guild Wars sometime add me to friends here Guild Wars Gold. And realize how much cheap gw gold I bought in the last couple of weeks, months, years. So I found this Guild Wars Factions and installed it.

First off if the name is not taken the name and some requiem lant of book Requiem I do not if it is allowed to name a book. Some requiem money will well enough chatting better go and write this book. Comment on this please should I write this book or not. See you. In Requiem, there is blood. Monsters, blood, bigger monsters, and yes, more blood and need cheap requiem lant. You know what that requiem online gold means; there are factions, races changing sides, and all out war.
