But it's been done by Democrats, so most of the media doesn't care

and most of the Democrats don't have the integrity to even say anything.  And far too many of the Republicans don't have the balls to say, let alone actually DO anything.
If you went into work tomorrow and diverted $3,000 of company money to someone without authorization, you would be arrested and charged with theft and embezzlement. But the government just stole THREE BILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS and gave it to huge corporations, and it doesn’t even make the news. Don’t liberals hate big corporations and the One Percenters like Mitt Romney that run them? Does the phrase “corporate welfare” ring any bells here?
Where is the outrage, liberals? Where is the outrage, media? Where is the outrage, Congress? Why is no one in handcuffs? How is this not a Constitutional crisis that blows runaway llamas and dumbass “I can’t breathe” protests off the internet? Am I the only one that noticed this? Why isn’t Paul Ryan himself calling a news conference on this matter?
Good question.

Robert Alan Murray is a prosecutor in Kern County, California.  Who committed a crime that would have had a private citizen in a cell, but this bastard is still working for Kern County.  And still has his law license.  Of course.
Kern County prosecutor Robert Murray committed “outrageous government misconduct.” Ms. Harris and her staff defended the indefensible—California State prosecutor Murray flat out falsified a transcript of a defendant’s confession.
And he didn't stop there:
...Not until after defense counsel requested the original tape recording from which the transcript was made did Mr. Murray admit that he had added the most incriminating statements to the transcript. 

When confronted with the defense’s motion to dismiss the indictment for outrageous prosecutorial misconduct, Mr. Murray claimed his own false alteration of the transcript was “in jest,” a “joke” between two lawyers, and harmless to the defendant. Mr. Murray lobbed in another little bombshell for good measure, swearing that defense counsel had said that the defendant’s defense was “not viable.”
Which set off a whole string of other messes. 

And what was the defense of this by the Californicated AG?
According to the California Attorney General, only abject physical brutality would warrant a finding of prosecutorial misconduct and the dismissal of an indictment. Fortunately for all of us—and the Constitution—she lost again.
Got that?  According to AG Kamala Harris, a prosecutor should be able to lie, and falsify documents and whatever else, but as long as he doesn't actually beat the shit out of someone, that should not count as 'prosecutorial misconduct'.

We're supposed to trust ANY of these bastards about ANYTHING why, again?

That he still has his law license after this is absolutely a miscarriage of justice. I know lawyers who have been publicly censured because they were accused of never returning phone calls. Not dereliction of duty resulting in a bad result in court, not returning phone calls. I know someone else who was disbarred because she received a settlement for a client, put it in the client trust account and then paid the client out of the lawyer's business account.
That this sorry excuse for a DA is still practicing law let alone still at his cushy government job is an affront to all lawyers, and especially those who have received discipline from the California Bar.
