Since the Justice Department is moving to have the conviction overturn and no new charges brought, should the prosecutors involved be charged with election tampering? He was convicted a week before the election, and barely lost his seat. Now it comes out one of the investigators was sleeping with a witness and the prosecution deliberately withheld evidence. Getting his name cleared is great, but shouldn't there be some punishment for "conveniently" tarnishing it just in time for the Dems to pick up another senate seat?

Mark Begich (the mayor of Anchorage) has defeated one of the giants in the US Senate by a 3,724-vote margin
Those 3,724 voters were all in on it, too!

An R by whose name? What are you even talking about?
Apparently the prosecution witheld evidence, according to this article.
He may well be guilty of the crimes he was charged with but because of the mismanagement of the case he won't be re-tried. To me(my own personal opinion here) it sounds like he's getting off on a technicality. I don't care WHO is granting his pardon--Obama's "people" or not.
