An Accountability Moment.

In David’s trial:

Two federal prosecutors in Miami are being reassigned for their roles in the secret tape recording of a defense attorney and his investigator in a criminal case.

Court documents show that prosecutor Karen Gilbert voluntarily stepped down as chief of the Miami U.S. attorney’s narcotics section. Prosecutor Sean Cronin asked to be transferred from the criminal division.

The U.S. attorney’s office acknowledges serious mistakes in a decision to have witnesses tape conversations with defense lawyer David O. Markus and investigator Michael Graff. Markus wants a federal judge to order the government to pay his fees and costs because of the misconduct.

That’s refreshing, huh? We’ve had way too few of these moments from our federal government over the last few years. We could use some more.
