The request was premature...

Despite "Local Solut--" I mean the HCDCC's efforts to get the Attorney General to prosecute Rob Arkley, "heraldo" reports (not in any of the online papers yet) that the AG has declined: “neither the District Attorney nor any involved party has asked us to intervene. Even if such a request were made, it is unlikely we would do so given the considerations set forth in the preceding paragraph. As a general rule, the Attorney General will not intervene in a local matter at the request of a third party, such as the Central Committee”, and continued “any request at this time appears premature. Nothing in your letter suggests that the appropriate local law enforcement agency such as the sheriff’s office or city police are unwilling or unable to investigate the alleged crime. That is an essential first step before it is even appropriate for a prosecutor to consider whether to bring charges.”

Should be interesting to see how Gallegos handles this one. Another rock and a hard place.

  3. They have certainly established it's a criminal/legal matter, not personal or political like some of the spin-meisters would have one believe.

  5. “They have certainly established it's a criminal/legal matter, not personal or political like some of the spin-meisters would have one believe.”

    Not to me they haven’t. In fact what the AG would most likely respond would probably be something to the effect of we don’t get involved unless there is an actual conflict and we don’t even know if this is criminal or not, the cops have to do their job and say so.

    Please go back and spin your bullshit somewhere else. This is personal and political and there is no way that without any investigation or recommendation by the police or DA (I know he’s an idiot) the AG would never ever say that it is established that a crime was committed.

    What do you take us for 10:41?
