Two points in question…
1. Is the Bush Administration targeting black officials (who are almost all Democrats)? Yes. That’s what the Bush Administration does, along with screwing up foreign policy and the economy, continuing unwinnable wars, and general malfeasance.
2. Are many of these officials actually guilty? Yes. They’re politicians! Most politicians are guilty of something.
Kwame Kilpatrick, one of Parkman’s clients, is from all I can tell incredibly guilty. I don’t know if BMLL is guilty, because I can’t make heads or tails of the case, but I think a lot of people would like to see him convicted just on general principles.
