Now We're Getting Somewhere

The letter is signed by Pat Leahy (D-VT), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Herb Kohl (D-WI), Russ Feingold (D-WI), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and reads in part:
We are concerned whether or not politics may have played a role in a case
brought by Stephen Biskupic, the United States Attorney based in Milwaukee,
against Georgia Thompson, formerly an official in the administration of
Wisconsin’s Democratic governor. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals was
reportedly so troubled by the insufficiency of the evidence against Ms. Thompson
that it made the unusual decision to issue an order reversing Ms. Thompson’s
conviction and releasing her from custody immediately after oral arguments in
her appeal.
