    Specter is the pig lawyer that allowed Ira Einhorn to be free in France for decades.

    Why is it that it doesn't surprise me Lakota that you would align yourself with such a swine of a human being?

    For those that are young and don't remember, Ira Einhorn is the Unicorn Killer. Basically he killed Holly and then composted her in his apartment.

    The biggie here is Ira started Earth Day.

    Why are you blaming Arlen Specter? This thread is about Arlen Specter's knowledge/opinion of Santorum's fitness for the Oval Office. I would guess that no one knows Santorum better politically than Specter.

    Ira Einhorn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Again, why are you blaming Arlen Specter? I do, however, find it strange that the judge reduced the bail - let alone allowing bail at all.

    Ah memories...

    Obama openly bribed Joe Sestak, this is an impeachable offense. When do the impeachment trials start?


    The Post & Email » Maintenance Mode
    Congressman Joe Sestak (D-PA) has stated on tape that he was offered a high-level post in Barack Obama’s administration to keep him from running against turncoat Senator Arlen Specter in the upcoming Pennsylvania primary election. It happened as Larry Kane interviewed Sestak for Comcast Network’s “Voice of Reason” program of Feb. 21.

    Larry Kane says that after taping the interview with Sestak he called the White House press office, played the tape for them, and invited a response, which came the next day: “The White House strongly denies the Sestak claim.” The denial is not surprising, since bribing a federal official is a crime.

    Here is Kane’s original account of Joe Sestak’s revelation:

    During the taping of my Comcast Network “Voice of Reason” show, which airs Sunday night at 9:30, I asked Congressman Joe Sestak: “Is it true that you were offered a high-ranking job in the administration in a bid to get you to drop out of the primary against Arlen Specter?”

    Sestak looked a little surprised. He said, “Yes.”

    I asked him if the job was Navy Secretary. He said, “I can’t comment on that.” In the next few seconds, he admitted that it was a “high-up” job, that it came from the White House, and that he didn’t accept the offering.

    Do some research....

    Senator Gaylord Nelson Started Earth Day. Einhorn hosted the first event held in Philadelphia, and the was before he killed anyone. Do you know why he was known as the "unicorn killer"? Not because he was some kind of serial killer...but because his name is Einhorn...which translates to "one horn"....as in uni-corn. Don't get me wrong...I'm glad the prick is in prison and hope he dies here. but to try to connect Einhorn with Specter is absolute bullshit and the main reason you fuckers are a bunch of frauds.

    Here's what happened with the extradition efforts...show me Specter's name on any of that. I don't know which AM radio Pundit spoon fed you your information...but they fuckin' lied to you.

    Extraditions

    In 1997, Einhorn was tracked down and arrested in Champagne-Mouton, France, where he had been living under the name "Eugene Mallon." The extradition process, however, proved more complex than it was initially envisioned, and contrasted the different interpretations that France and the U.S. have of the concept of the "right to a fair trial". Under the extradition treaty between France and the United States, either country may refuse extradition if it finds that the defendant may not get a fair trial.

    Einhorn's defense attorneys, including Dominique Tricaud and the Human Rights League (LDH), argued that Einhorn would face the death penalty if returned to the United States. France, like many countries which have abolished the death penalty, does not extradite defendants to jurisdictions which retain the death penalty without assurance that the death penalty will be neither sought nor applied. Pennsylvania authorities pointed out that at the date of the murder, Pennsylvania did not have the death penalty and therefore Einhorn could not be executed, due to provisions in the U.S. and Pennsylvania Constitutions regarding ex post facto law. However, a second issue soon arose: French law and the European Court of Human Rights require a new trial when the defendant was tried in absentia, hence was unable to present his defense. On this basis, the court of appeals of Bordeaux rejected the extradition request.

    Following the court's decision, thirty-five members of the United States Congress sent a letter to President Jacques Chirac of France, asking for Einhorn's extradition. However, under France's doctrine of the separation of powers, which was invoked in this case, the President cannot give orders to courts and does not intervene in extradition affairs.

    As a consequence of this refusal, in order to secure the extradition of Ira Einhorn, the Pennsylvania legislature passed in 1998 a bill (nicknamed the "Einhorn Law") allowing defendants convicted in absentia to request another trial. The bill was, however, criticized as being unconstitutional (as it was argued that the legislature cannot overrule a final judgment handed down by a court), and Einhorn's attorneys tried to use this to get French courts to deny the extradition again, on the grounds that the law would be inapplicable. However, the French court ruled itself "unable"[4] to evaluate the constitutionality of foreign laws. Another point of friction with the U.S. was that the court freed Ira Einhorn under police supervision — French laws put restrictions on remand (the imprisonment of suspects awaiting trial). Einhorn was then the focus of intense surveillance by the French police.

    The matter then went before Prime Minister Lionel Jospin, since extraditions, after having been approved by courts, must be ordered by the executive. Meanwhile, Einhorn's supporters alleged that he had been unfairly treated by American criminal justice and that he would not receive a fair trial. The French Green Party, in particular, complained that Einhorn should not have been extradited until the issues concerning his case were fully settled.[5] In some respects, the debate took on a political character, with discussion going beyond the particular case of Einhorn and widening into criticism of American justice and its perceived unfairness for some categories of defendants; there were also concerns that the case against Einhorn was politically motivated. Because of the sensitive nature of the case, Jospin took some time to reach a decision, but eventually issued an extradition decree. Jospin was then criticized by some on the right wing of French politics as having caved in to political pressure from U.S. President Bill Clinton. Einhorn litigated against the decree before the Conseil d'État, which ruled against him; again, the Council declined to review the constitutionality of foreign law.[6] He then attempted to slit his throat[7], and eventually litigated his case before the European Court of Human Rights, which also ruled against him.

    On July 20, 2001, Einhorn was extradited to the United States.

    I love murder. I know this case inside and out. Don't even dream to test me on this.

    Arlen worked with the Bronfman family to secure Ira a spot in France.

    You really should not align yourself with this pig Specter.
