The former judge, Bobby DeLaughter, was recently tossed in jail by the Rove Republican Racket for lying to the FBI but is considered a hero among civil-rights advocates. As a local prosecutor, Delaughter re-opened the civil rights-era case 30 years after the fact and prosecuted the Klansmen that murdered Medgar Evers.
Lange is a hypocrite.Evers was quoted as saying, “All he (DeLaughter) did was lie . . . What man can tell me he hasn't lied? You're telling me he should spend 18 months in prison for that?" In fact, Mr. DeLaughter lied about his own involvement in a scheme to improperly influence a proceeding over which he presided. And yes, Mr. Evers, I am telling you that he should spend 18 months in prison for that. As a judge, as a lawyer, and as a smart person, he knew better, which is precisely why he pleaded guilty to the crime.
Lange and Dawson have lied repeatedly about their involvement in a scheme to improperly write, outline, and plan a book while Assistant U.S Attorney Tom Dawson had influence over proceedings he was investigating and eventually wrote about.
The three questions remain unanswered.
