Quotes

..."We're back to the Nixon era," observes Norman Ornstein of the conservative American Enterprise Institute, "the era of undisclosed money, of big cash amounts and huge interests that are small in number dominating American politics."
"By keeping these defendants in Champaign County and not sending them to the penitentiary, not only have we saved money, we have kept families intact, had participants working, paying taxes and learning how to live in the community without using drugs or committing new crimes" said Judge Jeff Ford, a nationally recognized leader in the drug court field
...engaged in criminal activity has given rise to the perception these financial institutions are 'too big to jail,'" Gilbert said in a statement. "These softball prosecutions further highlight the real need to increase transparency on DOJ processes and decision-making when it comes to large financial institutions."
"Across political lines," he said, "people are saying that they want a constitutional amendment, that they want big money out of our political system - and that they see that they're no longer in control of the people who are supposed to represent them."
