Fitzgerald's shoddy investigation deserves no extension.
Advertisements [?]
We need to let the next US Attorney continue this investigation. Fitzgerald had the Governor of Illinois handcuffed and arrested early in the morning just a couple of weeks ago. They led him out for public display. Then the esteemed US Attorney stood before the microphones and talked about Lincoln rolling over in his grave and the massive corruption and law-breaking that was going on with the governor.

Now we find out, he had nothing. Zilch. But he says he needs 90 more days to complete his investigation. To complete his investigation? He had the Governor handcuffed and displayed as an example of a crooked politician brought to justice. Now he tells us that he doesn't have the evidence and that he needs 90 more days to complete it? Something is wrong with this picture folks.

I say that Patrick Fitzgerald be requested to hand over his resignation before January 20th and that he explain his rationale for his actions. No one has the authority to arrest a Governor of any state unless they have the goods on them at the moment. Not 90 days in the future but right now. If he doesn't resign, he should be fired.
