Let the eagle soar

While the destruction of the constitution considers apace under the auspices of his replacement, John Ashcroft is raking in the lobbyist money. One of his clients is ChoicePoint.

You may remember ChoicePoint and the voter-roll purges in the 2000 Florida election (without which, of course, Ashcroft would have simply remained the incumbent senator who lost to a dead man). Or ChoicePoint and Mexico. Or ChoicePoint and Venezuela.

Now ChoicePoint is paying for the services of a man who knows many secrets about public officials, who hired many of the lawyers who are now in a position to prosecute or not prosecute those officials for those secrets. Depending on whether said officials hire ChoicePoint to do their data-mangling, I'm sure.
