Are you kidding me, Montini?. The entire Andrew Thomas affair was nothing but a political hatchet job designed to distract the public from believing that there really is corruption by public officeholders. The disciplinary action taken against Thomas, Aubuchon and Alexander will have a chilling effect in the future whenever one of our public prosecutors gets wind of corruption in high places. After what happened to Thomas and his two deputies, who uncovered enough evidence to investigate correct practices involving the construction of the new Criminal Courts building, no one would ever dare go after the bad guys again.

Jack Levine,
Past Member of the State Bar Board of Governors
