Governor Rick Scott denies he appointed special prosecutor Angela Corey just to bring charges against Zimmerman. But if that was the case, why did he And Pam Bondi fire Norman Wolfinger and appoint Angela Corey?
Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi today worked together to appoint Angela B. Corey (of the 4th Judicial Circuit) as the newly Assigned State Attorney in the investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin. The Governor and Attorney General reached out to State Attorney Norman Wolfinger today. After the conversation, Wolfinger decided to step down from this investigation and turn it over to another state attorney.
Oh it says Norman Wolfinger step down, but we all know it was "resign or you're fire" kind of deal. I bet you my weight in gold that State Attorney Norman Wolfinger knew there was no case there. Since Rick Scott and Pam Bondi wanted to bring Zimmerman in for trail and Norman Wolfinger said no, there was a "conflict of interest" and he had to go.
So they brought in someone who would bring charges, State Attorney Angela Corey. Last night Norman Wolfinger was vindicated and be givien a medal for having the moral backbone to resign instead of bringing charges against a man he had no proof of murder.
State Attorney Angela Corey ran this case via misconduct. The biggest example of this misconduct, was the with-holding of exculpatory evidence and the firing of whistleblower Ben Kruidbos. Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz agrees:
[T]he prosecutors in the George Zimmerman murder trial should be charged with "prosecutorial misconduct" for suggesting the defendant planned the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
"That is something no prosecutor should be allowed to get away with ... to make up a story from whole cloth," Dershowitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"These prosecutors should be disbarred. They have acted absolutely irresponsibly in an utterly un-American fashion."
But they won't be charged with "prosecutorial misconduct" or be disbarred, because that would look bad for both Governor and Attorney General. No, "prosecutorial misconduct" should be leved squarely at feet of both Rick Scott and Pam Bondi and impeached!
Yes! I am calling for the impeachment of both Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi! They have both used their offices to seek a political witch hunt against George Zimmerman just to look like they are not racists, and that is an "abuse of power" and "prosecutorial misconduct" in my book. Wasting the tax payer's money should also be a crime, but then we wouldn't have a debt problem in the country otherwise. They have both disgraced themselves and should be held to an account.
Why should we impeach them? We can't have Governors and/or Attorney Generals forcing the prosecution of someone when there was clearly no evidence to support one. It is an "abuse of power" and it shouldn't be tolerated or celebrated. We are a nation of laws, not dicatorship (not yet, hopefully). We don't have trials to "get the facts out" or to seek vengence. Our justice system is designed to prevent vigilantism, not to take part in it. This was a mob inspired indictment and not a grand jury indictment. If Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi are allowed to get away with this, then the next person to get this treatment just might be you!
