Letter to the Editor – July 27, 2010

Some thoughts upon listening for two days to the Closing Arguments in the Blagojevich corruption trial in Chicago:  The Governor should have been able, from the outset of this prosecution, to invoke an insanity defense.  In any event, his political career has been, not unfairly, permanently ruined.  There is a problem, however, when conscientious Government lawyers seem to be unaware of dubious practices routine in American politics.  A hung jury would provide salutary lessons for everyone involved in this unfortunate case.

Respectfully yours,

George Anastaplo,
