When neither the facts nor the law are on your side, attack the prosecutor, the victims and the family dog.

Arizona Political Heat has posted an amusing rebuttal by Barnett Lotstein from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office regarding Superior Court presiding judge Barbara Mundell's recent op-ed defending her decision not to enforce Prop. 100, no bail for illegal immigrants. Lotstein notes that Mundell runs separate race-based courts for Spanish-speaking defendants who have committed DUIs; this seems to reflect part of a pattern by Mundell which favors certain races over others - and is obviously unconstitutional. He thinks Mundell wrote the op-ed in order to influence other judges.
