More than meets the eye UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Apr 25, 2008 at 6:34 AM

Doug Thompson of Stephens Media has news of the disappearance of a federal case brought in Missouri against an Arkansas company led by Robbyn Tumey, a Democratic activist. Nothing there. Case closed. I'll be interested to hear what Tumey has to say now that the charges have gone away. The U.S. attorney's office that brought this case was deeply enmeshed in the Bush Justice Department's employment as a political tool. Tumey has been an irritant to Republicans in Fortress NW Ark., otherwise known as Benton County.

UPDATE: The Democrat-Gazette account adds important information. It says the case was dropped because of speedy trial rules but that it still could be refiled.
