Bad PR, Bad Law

I was never able to understand the theory on which House Speaker Dennis Hastert joined with criminal Democrat William Jefferson in expressing outrage over the FBI’s search, pursuant to a warrant, of Jefferson’s office. Hastert and others claimed to be asserting a Constitutional principle, but, like so many such principles nowadays, it is nowhere to be found in the Constitution. Today, a federal judge ruled that the search was proper.

This is a valuable reminder that claims to be above the law, based on purported Constitutional provisions that no one can locate, should remain the province of liberal judges, not conservative Congressmen.
