A Blast From the Past

A BLAST FROM THE PAST….It looks like Ken Starr is up to his old tricks:

Sworn statements of five of six jurors urging clemency for death row inmate Michael Morales ? a convicted murderer they recommended be executed ? were forged documents, the San Joaquin County district attorney’s office said Friday.

….The affidavits were submitted Tuesday ? under seal ? to [Arnold] Schwarzenegger on Morales’ behalf by his high-profile defense team: [David] Senior and former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr.

Once a sleazebag, always a sleazebag. It’s actually kind of comforting to know that some things never change.
