D.A. Getting well deserved attention,lots of it.

From arming his often replaced assitant D.A.'s in local courtrooms to creating a needless $75 k job for Lou Desso's son as a "spokesman" Rensselaer County's DA Joel Abelove has managed to get some attention and well deserved criticism.
 After enduring a blistering Times Union editorial calling on him to resign and another front page article today explaining why the Attorney General is seeking authority to investigate his conduct, today he is the subject of an excoriating article in a national on line publication called the Daily Beast. You can read the article here.

Abelove was recently the subject of a NY Times editorial critical of his action and performance. The Daily Beast went through the litiney of refusing to prosecute his political pals while prosecuting his enemies.

With so many murder cases pending in the county, the last thing we need is more dismissals for failing to prosecute on time as occurred with three cases in Rensselaer recently.

One thing is for sure. If the Governor does remove Abelove, his politically connected and needless spokesman will be looking for a new job. Stay tuned tomorrow as the Daily Beast goes into some of the political patronage in Rensselaer County.

UPDATE: The Daily Beast published its followup story today which you can read here.
