With Hillary Clinton installed in the U.S. Senate and Bill Clinton still capturing headlines while quietly running the Democratic Party, it's plain America has yet to get fully past its decade of sleaze.
And while most who'd like to move on hope ignoring Bill and Hillary will do the trick, a hearty minority say America suffers from a case of "justice interruptus" - that the former first couple were demonstrably guilty of crimes but timid prosecutors failed to do their jobs.
Nearly 120,000 such citizens have petitioned the Bush administration to do something about this lingering affront to the nation's judicial system, in an effort sponsored by the Washington, D.C.-based legal watchdog group Judicial Watch.
"59,535 petitions were sent to Attorney General John Ashcroft demanding that he hold Bill and Hillary Clinton accountable using the evidence available to him from Democratic donor Peter Paul," Judicial Watch announced in a press release Tuesday.
Paul is the Hollywood producer who contributed over $2 million to Mrs. Clinton's New York Senate campaign - most of which she failed to report to the Federal Election Commission as required by law.
"26,103 petitions were also sent to President Bush demanding that he fire IRS Commissioner Charles Rossotti, a Clinton holdover responsible for illegal audits against conservatives organizations and other perceived adversaries of Bill and Hillary Clinton," said Judicial Watch.
That kind of abuse of the IRS was considered one of the most egregious crimes in the history of the presidency when Richard Nixon merely tried to do it in the 1970s. Twenty years later the Clintons got away with it in spades, a fact that still has many civil libertarians shaking their heads in disbelief.
And finally, says Judicial Watch, "33,580 petitions were sent to President Bush requesting that he rehire Linda Shenwick, the State Department official who single-handedly uncovered numerous instances of waste, fraud, and abuse of authority at the United Nations and State Department."
Shenwick was fired just one day after last year's presidential election, a move she believes was in retaliation for her congressional testimony about the U.N.'s massive misuse of U.S. tax dollars.
"The underlying basis of conservatism is respect for ethics and the rule of law," Judicial Watch Chairman Larry Klayman told NewsMax.com Wednesday.
"The president and the attorney general should understand that they were elected to carry out that mandate."
It must be pretty strong for Newsmax to continue being Klayman's butt boy.
ROTFLMAO!!!! Larry, Larry, Larry.....you are a real pip! And Carl in bed w/ Larry.....LOLOLOL!
"Were going to go after all crime, and were going to make sure people get punished for the crime."

Sorry, but I'm afraid Bushbotulism has already entered the food chain of totalitarianism.
I, too, would like to know the exact nature of the relationship between Limbacher and Klayman.
Or the pardon of the Portireco terrorist group? Especially now !!
