We Won! Cavanaugh Defeated!

Light overcomes darkness, the Forces of Good defeat the forces of evil. Well, sometimes. And this is one of those times. On April 23, I asked everyone to sign a petition informing Maine Governor Paul LePage of the serious defects in the candidacy for District Attorney of four counties of Paul Cavanaugh.
Cavanaugh has the deserved reputation of a prosecutor who, like his fellow traveler, Mary Kellett, has never seen a sexual abuse allegation he didn’t find meritorious enough to charge a man with and take to trial. Legion are those allegations that clearly should never have become formal charges, much less been pursued before a jury. Cavanaugh is one of those prosecutors for whom the canons of ethics seem to be more a vague suggestion than rules of conduct.
