Mnuchin's Merry Manure package

Reading about Mnuchin’s manure gift reminded me of a similar incident here in Colorado.

About ten years ago a bit of dried dog poop was wrapped in a campaign mailer and delivered to the front door of the candidate’s campaign office. Our county DA, a Republican, took offense at the offal and brought charges, and he maintained that the action had nothing whatsoever to do with his being a campaign manager for said candidate, also a Republican. Long story short, the DA spent a bit over $100K on the prosecution, and the jury took about fifteen seconds to return a verdict of not guilty, all this in a deep red county.

Having lost that case in rather spectacular fashion, the DA went on to get himself smacked by the state’s supreme court for illegally confiscating and perusing the tax returns of Hispanic taxpayers (ostensibly in search of illegal aliens). So what happens to a DA who so glaringly screws up? He goes to Congress, of course!

Ken Buck, why don’t you call whatever prosecutor in California gets the manure case and give them the benefit of your expertise in such matters? No doubt they’d appreciate it.

1. Maybe somebody should buy him a vowel

to insert near the front of his last name, it sure looks like it needs one.
