“You should be deeply ashamed of yourself. This prosecution is a joke. It is perhaps one of the most outrageous abuses of power by a prosecutor I have heard of in years. I’m a prosecutor myself — writing you on my own and not speaking for my office — and I just want you to know that your actions tar good prosecutors everywhere. Thank God you never became U.S. Attorney. I hope you lose quickly and are drummed out of public life in disgrace.”
– Patrick Frey, of Patterico, in an e-mail to Michael McCrum, the Texas special prosecutor who produced an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry on Friday.
