Monroe recently posted about the issue. In today's news are a posting from White Collar Crime Prof Blog about a federal prosecutor's press release that sends conflicting signals in the headline and the small print, and also the public apology/regrets from the highly regarded US Attorney for Chicago, Patrick Fitzgerald, who is stepping down from that position. In announcing the indictments of Gov. Blagojevich, Fitzgerald crossed the line when he said that Lincoln would be spinning in his grave. I (and others?) criticized Fitzgerald for that and so I'm glad to run news of Fitzgerald being candid about his error.
