One Of Benedict Arlen's Lowest Moments Besides Tuesday, April 28th?....

Hat tip to friend Leo Pusateri, Alias Psycmeister and Murtha Must Go blogmaster for the name and photoshop idea, thanks

While admittedly this presser is so chock full of lies and obfuscation's like "The party is too conservative" and the "Democrats are more moderate" and would represent a true low point in any principled person's life, even someone who could invent the "the single bullet theory" as a member of the ridiculous Warren commission.......

The absolute lowest point of this "political lifer" (who our founders would hang from a tree or yard arm in the town square) had to have been the time when as a private attorney he aided the leftist Unicorn murderer, Ira Einhorn, THE CREATOR OF EARTH DAY !!!! skip on his bail to temporarily avoid prosecution, showing solidarity with a societal scourge as he and other bleeding heart liberals have shown a constant propensity to do.

Always showing their heartfelt compassion for the scumbucket criminals amongst us, with none reserved whatsoever for the victims of their ghastly crimes, unless of coarse it is they or their family members who are or were the victims of such. those of them not killed in the womb that is.
National Review came with this piece Tuesday evening worth a read before you shed any tears that Benedict Arlen has finally admitted what we've all known for 40 years that poor Pennsylvanian's couldn't somehow figure out. Then again these are the same citizens who keep sending disgraced Marine and another political lifetime scum named Jihad Jack Murtha. back to Washington decade after decade, even after spooging all over the Haditha Marines causing an international incident that practically ruined the lives of 7 innocent and damn fine soldiers.
John J. Miller on Arlen Specter & Ira Einhorn: "Long before he became one of the most liberal Republicans in the Senate — and the target of Congressman Pat Toomey's GOP primary challenge — Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania demonstrated a knack for notoriety. In 1964, as a member of the Warren Commission, he invented the 'single-bullet theory' to explain how Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President Kennedy. Conspiracy junkies have obsessed over him ever since. (In Oliver Stone's movie JFK, Kevin Costner's character labels Specter 'an ambitious junior counselor' behind 'one of the grossest lies ever forced on the American people.')

"Between serving on the Warren Commission and becoming a senator, Specter was twice elected district attorney in Philadelphia, where he earned a tough-on-crime reputation. His most famous case, however, came in 1979, when he was in private practice and thinking about running for the Senate. A man named Ira Einhorn, better known as the "Unicorn," had been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend; she had been missing for a year and a half when police found her mummified corpse squeezed into a trunk hidden in Einhorn's closet.

Einhorn was a celebrated leftist and is credited with helping found Earth Day. He also had strong ties to Philadelphia elites — a group of people Specter was cultivating for his prospective Senate campaign when he agreed to become Einhorn's lawyer.

At an arraignment, the government demanded a $100,000 bail for Einhorn. Before Judge William Marutani, Specter called this "excessively excessive" and insisted on a reduced figure. Marutani wondered if Einhorn might "split for parts unknown." He mentioned Norway as a possible destination. "I have to disagree with your last statement," replied Specter. "Anybody is as likely to go to Norway as anybody else." Through the future senator's efforts, Einhorn's bail was dropped to $40,000. The accused man only had to put out ten percent of it in cash to secure his release.

As things turned out, Specter was proven correct: Einhorn didn't flee for Norway. He went to Sweden instead, slipping out of the United States shortly before his murder trial was scheduled to begin. Einhorn remained a fugitive until 1997, when police found him living in France under a phony name with his Swedish wife. He was eventually extradited to the United States. In 2002, he was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Specter, who quit the case soon after the bail hearing and rarely has spoken about it since, says he has no regrets about representing Einhorn or demanding the reduced bail. "If I had been D.A., I would have had him detained — there would have been no bail at all," he told me in an interview last year.

But by 1979, the tough-on-crime prosecutor had become a tough-on-prosecutor criminal defender. Perhaps he was just doing his job. It must be remembered, however, that his job, for which he volunteered possibly to curry favor with potential political supporters, involved reducing bail for a murderer who fled from justice.


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
