Anyone who doesn't know how bad this choice is needs to search you tube for his "advisory" speech to ATF personnel where he blatantly threatens anyone who blows the whistle on one of their cockamamie gun control scheme gone bad. Jones is nothing but a water carrier for Holder and his obstruction of justice in the Fast and Furious fiasco that caused the deaths of US border guards and dozens to hundreds of Mexicans. This nomination has got to be stopped. Bill G.
Nice work taking down that big drug dealer. Too bad some other guy you don't know about took his place the next day.
The stabbing of a Senior US Attorney during one his ' Weekly Swinger's Parties' has completely tarnished the reputation of Jone's office. Why hasn't this attorney been removed from prosecuting drug and sex trafficking cases? The St. Louis Park Patch has had more information on this story than the 'Strib.
An 8/15 police report detailing egregious behavior at the home of a Senior U.S. Attorney should have resulted in an investigation of the department by an outside agency. It is unfortunate that McEnroe is not being allowed to tell the full story.
Yet another unqualified and incompetent Obama nominee. His numbers as US Attorney here are so bad, they are embarassing. He should save even more shame, and withdraw his name, and resign his post here. He's simply not up to the job.
If he doesn't support the constitution, I don't see why he's even being considered. We can't have people in these positions acting against our nation and people forever. Do we need a new president to nominate law abiding citizens? If so blocking this appointment and defunding the errant arms of these divisions of government is in order. Rebellion is dangerous and this is what it looks like, nominating incompatible, non-constitutionally compliant individuals to positions of responsibility.
Corruption in law enforcement?!?! No way! It just can't happen!
Read Obama's book and you will see that he does not consider drugs a problem. He will support anybody that has a lax look at the problem and will let drug dealers run free. Obama would just as soon legalize drugs so he could have more money to tax and spend. End of story.
The low morale and hostile work environment under Carol Kayser has paralyzed the office. Dedicated, senior staff have to have Carol's permission to interview witnesses before a federal trial. Not getting this permission results in written warnings and suspensions. Kayser needs to be removed to restore even basic dignity to the office.
Jones is just one of PBHO's & Holder's minions. This situation is in part the result of irresponsible political endorsements for Obama et. al. by news reporting services like the Strib too.
