Joseph Cotto at the Washington Times has written a screwy article about the Kruidbos lawsuit against Angela Corey for wrongful termination and Sundance’s FOIA request for documents pertinent to the firing. Kruidbos is the naive former IT guy in the State Attorney’s Office who was fired for blowing the whistle on a non-event and was used to feed Wesley White’s desire for revenge against Corey after she fired him for not doing his job. White was an Assistant State Attorney who now represents Kruidbos and filed the lawsuit.
The lawsuit accuses Corey and Assistant State Attorney Bernardo de la Rionda (BDLR) of withholding exculpatory evidence from George Zimmerman’s defense team. The evidence consists of the inadmissible photographs and text messages stored on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone that were disclosed to the defense in January 2013, five months before trial.
Although I have no sympathy for Corey and BDLR after they basically threw the trial permitting the defense to win, I feel compelled to state that I do not believe there is any basis to this lawsuit.
Cotto’s article is an amusing and irritating example of right-wing-non-sequitur thinking and its strategy of keeping a lie alive.
