Larry Inman thinks we still need more of Larry Inman. He says he might run for U.S. Congress or for Wayne Schmidt’s Senate seat.
Inman says nobody wants him not to run: “I haven’t had one person say, ‘Get out of here.‘”
Uh…over 11,993 people signed your recall petition, Larry. 11,993 people want you to get out of here.
Jason Allen tried the next in line for Congress thing, and lost out to Jack Bergman. However, he still landed in taxpayer-funded pension land. No word if he won’t be able to help himself and run again if and when Bergman retires, or if he’s happy with the current state of being a career politician.
It sounds like the tone of the judge may have had an influence on the case. The judge seems to be trying to discourage prosecutors from seeking a retrial, even though a judge doesn’t have the authority to tell a prosecutor what they should and shouldn’t prosecute. An attitude like that creates an added hurdle for a prosecutor, who must not only convince a jury that they’re right, but that the judge is wrong, when that tone inevitably comes across in front of the jury.
