Call it a classic boondoggle, a catch 22, or a legal conundrum – it is an outrage.  It happened at Wisconsin’s highest legal level and now YOU are the only ones that can do anything about it.  It happened like this:

  • Elected official is accused of violating the law.
  • Investigators concurred and filed a complaint to a jury panel for disposition.
  • Accused convinces some of the witnesses to recuse themselves.
  • Witnesses are also prospective jury members
  • Jury is now without a quorum and does not act.
  • There is no official higher authority to hear the case.
  • Accused is not required to officially answer the allegations nor refute them.
  • Was justice circumvented?  Who knows. We can only suspect.

The story continues here.
