  •  Yes, why was the Secret Service involved at all? (4+ / 0-)

    the article I referred to was about the Boston AG's office

    the ill-considered prosecution leading to the suicide of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz is the most recent in a long line of abusive prosecutions coming out of the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston, representing a disastrous culture shift. It sadly reflects what’s happened to the federal criminal courts, not only in Massachusetts but across the country.
    but now that you mention the Secret Service, the Feds it's bringing to mind the federal involvement during the Bush admin. Wasn't there pressure from the Bush administration on AG's throughout the country to pursue "voter fraud?" and weren't the Democrats outraged over that.
