John Ashcroft

There was a time early on in the Bush Administration when Attorney General John Ashcroft was considered among the biggest enemies of online gambling.  Many believe it was he who got the ball rolling to quash the industry.  Investigations were begun on his watch though the resulting prosecutions came much later after he had left office. 

Yael T. Abouhalkah, a Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist described Ashcroft states that: "The cases involving Ashcroft, Missouri's ex-governor, will get plenty of media attention. Democrats and liberals have been calling for former Bush administration officials to be held accountable for their actions during the war on terror.

"Ashcroft's actions were "repugnant to the Constitution, and a painful reminder of some of the most ignominious chapters of our national history."

And Abouhalkah's headline is entitled "Ashcroft's Abuses Defied the Constitution". 

He points to a federal appeals court criticism of the former Attorney General saying he violated the rights of U.S. citizens after 9/11. It's an embarrassing development for Ashcroft given his former role as the nation's top law enforcement officer.
