Diaz Fights Back

The Rove Republican Racket went after Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Oliver Diaz not once, but twice. And they lost both times.

Diaz is now fighting back. He was in Washington DC yesterday.

The Jackson Clarion Ledger writes:

Former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Oliver Diaz Jr. called on Congress and the Obama administration Friday to step up investigations into what he called "political prosecutions" by the U.S. Justice Department. "There are political prosecutions that have gone on around the country," Diaz said. "Innocent men are sitting in federal prisons. ...It's time for us to do something." Diaz was acquitted of corruption charges in a 2005 federal trial and later on federal tax evasion charges.
