The Criminalization of Politics

Rick Hasen says Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) "joins the list of other politicians prosecuted under controversial or dubious theories, including Tom DeLay, John Edwards, Scott Walker, Don Siegelman, and Ted Stevens. Some go to jail; some don't. Some get convicted by juries; some don't. Some have their prosecutions overturned on appeal; some don't."

"The common thread here is the criminalization of politics."
