Meet Ed Peters, former District Attorney of Hinds County, Mississippi. He and others were involved in a bribery and influencing ring with a Mississippi State Judge. Some of the other ring members are in prison and the judge has been indicted.
The Rove Republican Racket is using him to go after successful Democratic fund-raisers like Paul Minor and politicians in a State well-known for their hateful persecution of "those of a different political persuasion."
Now come the news from reliable sources that the sweetheart deal Ed Peters received by the Rove Racket, including full immunity and only partial payment of a $1 million bribery payoff, is being closely reviewed. Prosecutorial misconduct? Most likely.
Like the Pied Piper, Peters has sung ambitious Assistant U.S. Attorneys down a dangerous path to save himself and provide another embarrassing episode in a state many call "backwards."
