I just saw this petition at whitehouse.gov.  Its not getting much action but I think it should.  If any one actually sees this posting please take a look and if you agree sign up, sounds enough like a cover-up conspiracy to me that I really wanted to know more.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    i think the statute of limitations for perjury is usually 3 years -- and the same for fraud.  I'm not sure how these cases could be prosecuted now with or without a petition.  But IANAL.

    Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.

    has run on all of this. However, if you want to read more laserhaas, a frequent diary writer here at DKOS, has written more than 100 diaries on this topic.

    unless the reference is ironic and what is really being contemplated is revenge.
    Personally, I don't appreciate justice being denigrated like that.
    That said, petitions have become a vehicle for the compilation of lists of like-minded individuals who can be dunned or targeted for contributions of dollars to the causes with which they have associated themselves. They're an off-shoot of direct mail advertising, a marketing technique.
    Besides that, legal prosecutions in response to petitions would violate justice from the get-go. If individuals have information about wrong doing, that should be forwarded to the agents of law enforcement. But, fact is that the deprivations practiced on Wall Street have all been made legal by law-makers in Congress and the several state houses. Legal crime. We've got a long history of that, going all the way back to the Constitution, which reclassified some persons as 3/5, depending on whether they had been purchased by someone else. Deprivation of right under cover of law. It also applies to human rights as recently as 1993, when DADT was passed. The "rule of law" is a handy tool for tyrants, since it imposes tyranny without leaving any fingerprints.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
