And that doesn't touch the big enchilada. Famed California prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi is one of several writers who have made compelling cases that the U.S. Supreme Court acted corruptly in its 2000 Bush v. Gore ruling that handed the presidency to George W. Bush.
More recently, we've seen evidence that the U.S. Supremes acted corruptly in the Alabama case that led to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. We plan to post soon about the Supreme Court's shenanigans in that case.
Here's perhaps the most disturbing part of our current predicament regarding justice: Our supposedly fresh, progressive leaders don't seem to get it. U.S. Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) says he hopes the Siegelman case will fade from view by 2010. (Doesn't look like that's going to happen, Congressman.)
These are dark days for American justice. And they just got darker on Friday.
