Promotion or Medal of Freedom?

From the Associated Press:

The lawyer accused by a judge of coaching witnesses in the death penalty case of Zacarias Moussaoui was placed on paid administrative leave from her job Thursday as the trial remained in recess.


The TSA lawyer, Carla Martin, violated federal witness rules when she sent trial transcripts to seven aviation witnesses, coached them on how to deflect defense attacks and lied to defense lawyers to prevent them from interviewing witnesses they wanted to call, a federal judge said Tuesday.


U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema said that Martin's actions and other government missteps had left the aviation evidence ''irremediably contaminated,'' and the judge has excluded virtually half of the prosecution's case against the confessed al-Qaida conspirator.

I'm betting Ms. Martin gets a promotion - like deputy attorney general or a judicial appointment.

That's usually what her level of fuck-up gets from Bushie.
