As diaried last night, a couple of us went to picket the Federal Courthouse in Pittsburgh to call for the removal of Mary Beth Buchanan as US Attorney for Western Pennsylvania.
Just before heading out, I'm in the hallway outside the Arlen Specter/Joe Sestak campaign event, trying to recruit more picketers with my anti-Buchanan signs. Arlen approached to inform me that he and Senator Casey had interviewed potential replacements earlier this week, and that Buchanan's already being canned.
She first cme to national attention going after Tommy chong for operating an online store selling fancy glassware pipes, then a failed prosecution of Allegheny County Coroner Cyril Wecht, a partisan witchhunt which led even former Reagan Attorney General Richard Thornburg to call for her ouster when Bush was still President.
Her pursuit of an out of State couple in the first Federal pornography case in 15 years was tossed 2 weeks ago.
I don't have photos from the action,, but expect they'll be posted as comments shortly. The highlight was definitely the city bus driver who opened the bus doors to shout "Dump her!' enthusiastically.
