Sunday night I brought you the story of a young woman whose horrific sexual assault was compounded by her attackers posting pictures on the internet. Even worse, attorneys for the convicted juveniles were seeking contempt charges against her for posting their names on Twitter after she first heard about the plea deal in the courtroom, with no consultation with the prosecution. Today, the contempt request was dropped by attorneys for the two convicted sexual assaulters.

Among those who refused to comply with Congressional subpoenas, never mind requests, while George W. Bush was president were: the Department of Justice, the Secretary of State (“not inclined” was Condi’s explanation), the Vice President (who preemptively announced he would probably not comply with such silliness and didn’t), the White House Counsel, the White House Chief of Staff, the White House Political Director, the White House Deputy Chief of Staff, the White House Deputy Political Director, the White House Office of Management and Budget …and so on.

Watch out for defaulted credit card scams. Until Courts start protecting their credibility by holding lying lawyers and clients in contempt, this won’t get better.
