GOP Justice

An embarrassment, an utter disrespect for a system of law, from a woman who lives with a crook and convicted felon without any awareness of what's going on around her.
A week after her ex-con husband was nabbed for speeding again, the Republican candidate for attorney general had to deal with the release of a falsely imprisoned man - whose plea for help was ignored by Pirro while she was Westchester County district attorney.

Pirro defended her handling of the case. "This defendant was convicted by my predecessor. No new evidence was presented to my office while I was district attorney," she told reporters on Long Island, where she was endorsed by a Nassau County police union.

"No new evidence was presented to the current district attorney, either," replied Eric Ferrero of the Innocence Project.
