Where you find ill-gotten money…

you will find amoral politicians:

The district attorney in a Texas county with a well-known drug-trafficking route repeatedly allowed suspected drug runners and money launderers to receive light sentences — or escape criminal charges altogether — if they forfeited their cash to prosecutors.

This is not, however, limited to the county level:

(Shelby County DA Lynda Kaye) Russell and other county law enforcement officials have been under investigation by the Department of Justice’s civil-rights division since 2008, when they were named defendants in a class-action lawsuit stemming from traffic stops in the small town of Tenaha.

How special. All of this is something to keep in mind the next time you hear politicians speaking out against legalization or more lenient drug laws. Don’t think it really is all about teh childrenses and nothing else — because it isn’t. Not by a long shot.
