The Fix Is In (Again)

-- by Dave Johnson

Remember how Bush blocked a prosecutor from looking into Abramoff, back in 2002? Well Bush has put a right-wing political operative - with ties to Tom DeLay - in charge of the current Abramoff prosecution.

Jane Hamsher at firedoglake,

Fisher is a career Republican who in her former job was registerd as a lobbyist for HCA, the healthcare company founded by Bill Frist's father. Her appointment was also controversial due to the fact that like her boss Abu Gonzales, Fisher has no trial experience and with Comey gone there would be no senior member of the Justice Department who was an experienced criminal prosecutor.

Digby:

Now, ask yourself if an investigation was being held into powerful Democrats under a Democratic administration if there would be shrieking harpies flying all over the airwaves today demanding a special prosecutor.

Yeah, I know. Whatever.

Daily Kos: Abramoff prosecutor has reported ties to DeLay defense,
Alice Fishser has never worked as a prosecutor. She worked as a litigation associate in the Washington office of New York-based Sullivan & Cromwell. Where she represented corporate scum.
So, do you think Abramoff is goig to name other Republicans? Or, maybe ... frame a bunch of Democrats with Bush Justice Department help?

Thanks, good catch. It was 2002. I'm old, the years fly by.
