U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan Out, Regrets Tommy Chong Plea
Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan is officially out of office. Her one regret: Accepting a plea deal from Tommy Chong. I take that to mean she's sorry she didn't force him to trial so she could have slammed him with more than 9 months for selling bongs on the internet.
She made no secret that she wanted President Obama to keep her in office. Good for him for declining. Her chief legacy will be Tommy Chong, who, via Celeb Stoner, responded:
"I'm honored to be Mary Beth's only regret. Now does she regret going after me? Or does she regret that I never got enough time? I tend to think she wishes she'd never heard my name. I have become her legacy. Mary Beth Loose Cannon is now looking for a job. She blew her last job busting me. Karma is so sweet! She's looking for a work while Cheech and I start our second multi-million dollar tour thanks to the publicity she created for us! Thank you Mary Beth - may you find peace and happiness in your search for your soul."
Another over-the top prosecution (and failure): That of Cyril Wecht.
