Al Capone and the Obama staff subpoenas
Imagine for a moment that Karl Rove and other Bush White House top level staff were subpoenaed by a federal prosecutor looking into corruption in Texas in early 2002. Then imagine that the news of these subpoenas came via an organization originally set up to combat the malign influence on state officials of Al Capone.
Way down in the story we learn that the subpoenas were revealed by a FOIA request to the Governors office that was litigated for more than two years by a group called the Better Government Association. This association has long and storied history. Originally founded in 1923 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing influence of the Capone gang.
