Will Holder Listen?

According to today's post in the blog Legal Schnauzer, Paul Minor's Attorney has sent U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder a letter requesting his release and a review of his case based on what has been done in Alaska (see post below).

As you may recall, the Rove Republican Racket in Mississippi targeted and prosecuted Democratic fundraiser Paul Minor twice and convicted him by stretching the law. Currently, the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals is reviewing the case.

Here is a main paragraph from the letter written by Minor's attorney Hiram Eastland:

What has emerged in recent months is a troubling pattern and practice on the part of the Criminal Division under the direction of William Welch to allow ground level prosecutors to overreach in their legal theories, use questionable tactics to obtain evidence, and mislead, withhold, and manipulate trial material in order to further blatantly improper prosecutions.
