6. I don't see the 'political ambition' alleged by the author of the article.

How would it enhance anyone's career to have pushed for a 4-6 month sentence that would likely have resulted in probation and not jail time?

There is no mention that it was MIT who wanted to make an example of Swartz. This is why they are conducting an internal probe to determine what they did wrong.

The entire case was a waste of everyone's time but it was Swartz who killed himself.
