In his April 9 Hits & Misses column “Indicting DeChristopher,” Ted McDonough wrote, “What the Obama administration hopes to accomplish by now bringing down the hammer on monkey-wrench boy … is hard to fathom.”

If DeChristopher gets away with it, others will try also. Those in power—be they Republican, Democrat, or anything else—need the rules to keep the power.
