Fitzgerald Needs/Deserves Fair Evaluation

by S-Q @ 7:30 PM MDT

Raw Story

There have been numerous articles, discussions and analyses of the announcement that the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, Patrick Fitzgerald, was ranked as "undistinguished" on a Department of Justice chart sent to the White House in March 2005. Some have also described his evaluation as one which rated him as being merely "mediocre."

If this wasn't so critically important to the future of prosecutorial activity in Chicago, it would almost be comical. Some have portrayed the story in a humorous light, but it is much too serious to pass off as a joke at this time. However, none of the information available appears to fully explain the criteria utilized to reach the evaluation of Mr. Fitzgerald.

Fitz is the best prosecutor in this country!

Yeah, that is almost funny that they rated him as "undistinguished"...

Since when do you require criteria to do a hatchet job on a guy prosecuting one of your buddies?

I almost wish they HAD fired him - I think the scum might have risen to the surface quicker.
