This Ain't Going Away Anytime Soon...

Nor should it in a way, but it looks like Wisconsin Democrats are going to try to get as much bang for their buck as they can with it.
Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is calling on Congress to look into the prosecution of former state worker Georgia Thompson, whose conviction for rigging a bid was overturned by a federal appeals court last week.

In a statement, the Democrat from Madison says that the court's decision raises questions about the integrity and motivation of the prosecutor.

Thompson was accused of favoring a company with ties to Democratic Governor Jim Doyle. Her conviction became an issue last year when Doyle's opponents used it in ads against him in his run for re-election.

An aide to U-S Attorney Steven Biskupic says the office would welcome a review. The aide says Biskupic was not pressured by the Bush administration or the Republican Party to bring the case.

Anyone get a hold of Marc Marotta these days? He's got to have something to say, doesn't he?
