  •  Think about it. (0+ / 0-)

    You're connected to deaths because a law wasn't followed for the sake of bribery.  You're a Republican and need the support of fellow Republicans.  And you want your constituents and potential jurors to see you as being tough on crime.

    So your best course of action is to unilaterally suspend all death penalty convictions?

    No, I'm not from Illinois.  Maybe that allows me to look at this objectively.  Again, if there's any reason other than "He did something good.  Therefore he must have had a bad motive" thinking behind your allegations, my ears are open.

    Otherwise, he gets my respect on this issue.
