Cracker Jacks in South Carolina

In South Carolina, three men indicted and accused of ripping off 7,000 investors of $82 million had their day in court.

According to The State:

We wonder if U.S. Attorney William Walter Wilkins II (pictured) of the Rove Republican Racket will have an appropriate response to the obviously absurd.
On Monday, the three men, on their own, filed an answer to the indictment that said the government's case is fraudulent because they are not citizens of the country. Instead, they are ancestors of people who lived in what's now the United State before the European colonists arrived.The men also said since they have not damaged the plaintiff in the case, the United States of America, federal prosecutors have "failed in their duties" to protect the constitution. They also accuse the U.S. attorney's office in South Carolina of 83 "unlawful actions," including racketeering, armed assault, theft of public funds, treason and failing to prevent apartheid and genocide. The actions are punishable with fines from $250,000 to $2 million each, they wrote. "We Declare the vicious lies, fraudulent accusations, and unlawful assertions made by the invading parties on Ancestral lands to be without any merit," they wrote.
