Jeremy Boren's masterful deconstruction of the Lot 6 transaction -- by which elected and appointed public officials conveyed invaluable land to a well-connected private interest for less than 10 percent of the apparent market value -- evokes concepts such as shame, dishonesty, incompetence, fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty.
It also should provoke prosecutorial scrutiny. That aspect of the situation is complicated, however, by the new United States Attorney's longstanding relationships with more than one interested party and by the district attorney's practiced disregard of corruption cases that do not benefit the List-Makers.
This might be another case for the Public Integrity Section.
