Free defense for the next indicted gov?

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

In a news conference today to announce he was seeking a commutation for former Gov. George Ryan, I asked former Gov. James Thompson if another governor were indicted in Illinois whether Winston & Strawn will again provide free defense services.
Thompson dodged.
"OoooK, I think we’ve gone beyond the reach of this press conference," Thompson replied.

Spoken like a truly nervous person.

Commutations, free defense and Scooter Libby justice...these people make me sick. We should all find some way to JUST SAY NO! I can just imagine Tony Rezko will hold out (if found guilty) praying Obama becomes President so he can have a Presidential Pardon.
