Media's Contrasting Views of Prosecutorial Scandal

The Wall Street Journal got it right, as they usually do on such issues.

But The Washington Post thinks the main point is that Stevens somehow got away with a crime. They apparently missed the news that the main government witness plainly lied about the amount of money involved in the Stevens house rehab--$80,000, not $240,000. Eighty thousand is not a lot for remodeling a house.

In comparison, how much has been spent on a wrongful prosecution of a sitting U.S. senator? What price does The Post think should be placed on the government's legal manipulation of a federal election?
