Quotation for Today: An Abuse of Power

The quotation for today and the story it introduces remind us of the old adage that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Please continue across the jump to read the quotation and a synopsis of the article.
"Considering the clear abuses that occurred by Andy Thomas, Lisa Aubuchon and Rachel Alexander, the judge's ruling was absolutely appropriate."
Rick Romley

Rick Romley was Andrew (Andy) Thomas' immediate predecessor as the Maricopa County Attorney.  Mr. Romley is a former United States Marine and a disabled Vietnam veteran.

Mr. Romney's comment is about the abuses that occurred in the office of the Maricopa County Attorney when Andrew Thomas was the county attorney.  According to the article, Andrew Thomas and others in the Maricopa County Attorney office, for political reasons, threatened Maricopa County officials and a Maricopa County Superior Judge with legal action.

Maricopa County is located in the State of Arizona, United States of America.  Phoenix, Arizona -- the capital of Arizona -- is one of the major city's in Maricopa County.
