Paul Minor’s Attorneys File Emergency Motion for His Release

Attorneys representing Paul Minor, the Mississippi attorney currently serving 11 years in federal prison on bribery charges trumped up by Karl Rove’s confidantes in the Bush Justice Department, filed an emergency release motion with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday seeking his immediate release while the court deliberates his appeal. It is the last chance Minor will get to see his wife before her imminent death.

Given the near certainty that Rove was the chief strategist behind the Bush Justice Department’s targeted prosecutions of Paul Minor and other prominent Democrats — the details of which are currently under Congressional investigation — Judge Owen’s impartiality was questionable. She was correct to step down from this case.
