Liberal AZ Republic condemns witchhunt by State Bar against County Attorney Thomas

For those of you who have been following the McCarthyite-like investigation of Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas by the Arizona State Bar Association, there is some good news. The local liberal newspaper Arizona Republic has come out with an editorial denouncing the Bar's investigation. The East Valley Tribune, the other main newspaper in the Valley, has steadily ran articles critical of the investigation. Click here for the original press release by Thomas, here for an abbreviated version I wrote, and here for a follow-up article I wrote. The investigation of Thomas was started in retaliation for Thomas insisting that the courts enforce Prop. 100, no bail for illegal immigrants accused of committing serious crimes.
