Absurd statement of the day

The attorney for Sean Ramaley – who was indicted in the bonusgate scandal (accused of taking a no-work job to campaign for the House, and dropped his bid for a Senate seat yesterday – says:

“If you look at when these charges came down, there is no reason at all why these charges could not have been deferred [until] after the election, and allow the people to make their choice,” Mr. Ignelzi said. “For whatever, they were brought forward before the election.”

Do we really live in a world where people believe voters are better off not knowing crimes allegedly committed by candidates for office, or that prosecutors should ignore corruption so that Democrats (Republicans) can win?
