Obama: Scooter Deserves Jail

A week or so ago, Obama '08 General Counsel Bob Bauer posted a destestable piece of jackassery over at the Huffington Post, "The Progressive Case for a Libby Pardon". The reasoning is so poor as to defy logic and all recent history, and has been ably addressed elsewhere, so I won't even get into it. It did inspire me to write an angry letter to the Obama campaign, expressing my sore disappointment that a member of his team was pushing this tripe. I received this response:

Dear Friend,

Thank you for contacting Obama for America (OFA) about the recent personal blog post written by OFA’s outside counsel, Bob Bauer, regarding the Lewis "Scooter" Libby case. We appreciate hearing from you.

Senator Obama opposes a pardon and strongly believes that Libby should be held accountable for his actions, including serving jail time. Mr. Bauer was speaking on his own behalf and his views do not represent Senator Obama's or the campaign's.

Thank you again for contacting us.


Obama for America

Good to hear.
