Our post from yesterday was right on target. We concluded that federal prosecutors in Mississippi appear to be leaking information out to the media to manipulate the jury pool in a judicial bribery case.
Our take on the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Mississippi was reaffirmed today in the Jackson Clarion Ledger.
As you may recall, that particular office in Mississippi is a hillbilly branch of the Rove Republican Racket and has successfully prosecuted "them Democrats" like the segregationists before them prosecuted "them colored folks."
One way is to stack the jury.
The Ledger writes:
Hinds County Circuit Judge Bobby DeLaughter wants the jury pool for his federal corruption trial pulled from the entire northern half of Mississippi so he has a better chance of finding jurors not tainted by media coverage....Jurors for federal trials in Oxford usually come from a 17-county area, but DeLaughter wants that expanded to the entire 37-county northern district because of media attention in the case.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder should use his power over the U.S. Attorney's Office in Northern Mississippi and end the prosecutorial misconduct and gross injustice by Rove and his hillbilly friends.
