Another Look at the Bad Times in the Public Integrity Section


U.S. News & World Report examines the decline in fortunes and reputation of the Justice Department's Public Integrity Section in the wake of the failure to get convictions on John Edwards and the disaster of the bungled Ted Stevens prosecution.    Entitled "Government's Leading Anticorruption Group Fraught with Failure," the article paraphrases one critic's comments to the effect that the unit's "problems don't seem to have been malevolent, but a result of poor leadership and restricted powers stemming from unfavorable case law."
