Corzine gets the New Black Panther treatment.
To control prosecutorial exertion is to control when and where the law is applied. Whom the posse pursues should not be a whim of political influence, but a matter of compulsory legal scrutiny.
No man is above the Law. No man, not even the Attorney General, should decide if and when and to whom law is applied. And Congressional testimony, though unpleasant, is not penance
Could we imagine sports officiated this way. On an NFL Sunday, certain running backs may step out of bounds, certain receivers may trap the ball on the ground. Video review, like the Philly polling place, is good theatre but of no consequence.
In this analogy, Holder would be the ref with his head under the hood, on the sidelines. Watching and deciding. He comes to the middle of the field and flicks his belt microphone switch and tells the crowd the rules don't apply in this instance. Touchdown, my team. Didn't I mention the referee is also part of a team?
Jon Corzine is accused of using segregated customer funds for backing his bad trading decisions at the firm MF Global. The funds were indeed used for that purpose. People know who made the call. Immunity to them was not offered. Testimony of those who know what occurred and at whose hand, not wanted. Why? The referee doesn't really want to know.
It has been a good four years for Obama money bundlers and New Black Panthers. They don't get the blind eye of justice, they get the turned head of Holder. Polling violations. Unsegregating segregated customer funds. Green energy business concepts bankrolled by the taxpayer, even when the stark economic realities of the enterprise are faulty.
In a very similar case to MF Global, the head of Peregrine Financial, Mr.Wasendorf, faced the same question. "Do we go out of business or cheat?" It looks like he cheated as well. Peregrine Financial's head contemplated suicide. Corzine apparently picked up the phone and started calling in favors.
One man had a string of favors to people in high places. He even had a former employee as head of the regulatory body that was charged with overseeing things such as maintaining the integrity of segregated customer funds. He was a member of the party in power. He bundled money. So many phone calls to make.
Maybe the Department of Justice is just too busy to pursue some cases. They are busy suing Arizona and others attempting to enforce law, and they are very busy faking cooperation with Congressional Oversight Committees.
