Gelber Unloads on Bushies Who Politicized Federal Proscutors' Offices

The Democrats' side of the Florida Attorney General race, between Sens. Dave Aronberg and Dan Gelber can feel like a meeting of the Mutual Admiration Society. But it's just not healthy to be always so measured and tactful, which is why it must have felt good for Gelber to wind up and then tee off on the Bush cronies who sullied the sacred ground where Gelber's public service began.

On a blog usually reserved for warm and fuzzy tales of being a Big Brother and a community volunteer, Gelber's post from yesterday strikes a furious tone. He writes:

A prosecutor represents the sovereign with all its majestic power and process. The idea that someone would direct the sovereign's force to deprive someone of their liberty or property based on party affiliation is patently amoral and illegal.
Gelber, who recently won the endorsement of former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, will be debating Aronberg in October in Orlando.
