2. Senate Judiciary Committee OKs Joyce
Vance as U.S. attorney
Posted by Mary Orndorff  for Birmingham News

The Senate Judiciary Committee this morning approved Joyce Vance
as President Barack Obama's choice to be U.S. attorney for the
Northern District, based in Birmingham.   
Final confirmation now rests with the full U.S. Senate, which could take
it up next week.

Vance would replace Alice Martin, who held the job during the Bush
administration.

3. Elusive Justice Overdue in the Case of
Political Prisoner Paul Minor
by Brendan DeMelle for the Huffinginton Post

It is time for the Obama Justice Department to reverse one of the most
egregiously political persecutions of the Bush era -- Paul Minor's
bogus conviction on trumped up charges of public corruption "bribery"
despite a total lack of evidence that his role as the top funder of
Democratic candidates in Mississippi netted him anything other than
misery and a harsh prison sentence.

Attorney General Eric Holder stated recently that "elections have
consequences." That premise should apply not just to President
Obama's pick for the Supreme Court and appointment of new U.S.
Attorneys, as Holder mentioned. It should compel a swift review of the
unjust prosecutions of prominent Democrats targeted by the Bush
Justice Department.

Paul Minor's case is Exhibit A.
