1. Whistleblower's Letter Reveals Corruption
in Siegelman Prosecution
by Roger Shuler for OpEd News

Leura Canary, U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Alabama, wrote
press releases about the Don Siegelman case that were distributed
under the signature of assistant prosecutor Louis Franklin. Also,
Canary regularly had two assistants communicate her suggestions
about the Siegelman case to Franklin.

All of this took place after Canary had announced her recusal from
the Siegelman case. And they are two of many stark examples of
prosecutorial misconduct outlined in a letter dated June 1, 2009, from
whistleblower Tamarah Grimes to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

2. Obama Justice Department Tries to
Protect Corrupt Alabama Prosecutor
by Roger Shuler for Legal Schnauzer

It stands to reason that someone in the Justice Department should
respond to the motion from Latifi's attorneys. But why was it Joyce
Vance? As Martin's successor, and the current supervisor over
several assistants who allegedly were involved, Vance clearly has
conflicts in this matter. Why did she not recuse herself and hand the
matter over to a DOJ representative from outside the Northern
District?

Because Vance did not step aside, we appear to have an Obama
appointee trying to cover up wrongdoing by perhaps the worst
prosecutor in the corrupt Bush Justice Department. Is that "change we
can believe in"?

And it raises this question: Is Joyce Vance interested in justice or is
she interested in protecting the legal status quo in Alabama? As the
wife of a state circuit-court judge, Robert Vance Jr., does Joyce Vance
want to make sure she doesn't rock the boat of our state's corrupt
"justice" establishment?
