A federal judge has ordered prosecutors to produce affidavits explaining why photographs were released and any news conferences held following the arrests of two Boston politicians on corruption charges. Judge Douglas Woodlock said Thursday at a pretrial hearing that he wants to evaluate whether prosecutors tried to "gin things up" among the public following the arrests last year of former Sen. Dianne Wilkerson and Boston city councilor Chuck Turner. Woodlock said he wanted affidavits by July 16 from anyone involved in the decision-making process, potentially including former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan.

Bean Town Bra Bribes
The Rove Republican Racket thought they were clever. In 2007 and 2008, they targeted two allegedly corrupt Democratic politicians in Boston. Investigators caught the politicians on tape and on film stuffing bribes in a bra.
Then came the grand standing!
Now a federal judge wants to know why a high profile news conference was held right after the arrests and photos from the investigation released. The news conference and photo incidents happened last year.
From the Associated Press:
Sullivan is part of the Rove-Bush-Cheney machine and now has a well-paying job with former Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft. The indicted and arrested politicians, Turner and Wilkerson, both prominent Democrats are also alleging they were targeted for being high-profile leaders in the African-American community.
Although both these politicians may go to jail, the Rove Racket arrogantly showed-off.
