    ” Kane said one reason was that prosecutors in the case had issued orders to target “only members of the General Assembly’s Black Caucus” and to ignore “potentially illegal acts by white members of the General Assembly.””

    Just keep in mind that this assertion comes from a prosecutor who had iron clad evidence of crimes by politicians of her own party, and refused to prosecute. Just to put this in context.

    Was that context somehow missing? I thought that’s what makes the story interesting. As for “iron clad,” if you read the article I think you’ll see that two other prosecutors (EDPA USAO and a state republican) also passed, apparently worried about entrapment.
