29. 
because of the political implications. A perfect example is Rush. A normal citizen who made that many serial transactions to avoid the federal reporting requirements for cash withdrawals would be prosecuted. Particularly if there is substantial evidence that the transactions were made to avoid detection of another crime such as tax evasion or drug trafficking which the reporting requirements were designed to reveal. Rush is a very lucky man that he has the AG to influence the case assignments.

Other examples abound, Enron and the securities fraud crowd etc.

That is not to say that the attorney named in this investigation isnt a straight shooter, just to say that politics is now playing a role in who is prosecuted and how vigorously. It aint your fathers Justice Department any more.
