Prosecutor who had Cheney indicted yells at judge
By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN, Associated Press Writer
RAYMONDVILLE, Texas A county prosecutor who brought indictments this week against Vice President Dick Cheney and others pounded his fist and shouted at the judge Friday during a routine hearing. Willacy County District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra asked Presiding Judge Manuel Banales to recuse himself from the case, which alleges abuse at federally run prisons.
Attorneys for the vice president and other defendants leapt to their feet in objection as Guerra pounded the table and accused Banales of giving the defendants special treatment.
"Now all of a sudden there is urgency," Guerra shouted. "Eighteen months you kept me indicted through the election."
Guerra lost his bid for re-election in the March primary and will leave office in January. He was indicted last year on charges he extorted money from a bail bond company and used his office for personal business, but the charges were dismissed last month.
Guerra said the judge was wrong to allow motions to quash the indictments to be heard before the defendants were arraigned.

Does the flea trying to rape an elephant ring any bells?
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but isn’t the Spanish word cojones? A cajon is a box. I get tired of this mistake.
He’s probably camped out with the goats again.
Grand-standing, trying to build name recognition for his next campaign. We’ve seen it at every level, from “Nader for President” on down to the Memphis City council.
From the sounds of it, this prosecutor is pulling one last power play before he leaves office in January. He's obviously angry that he lost his reelection bid, and is acting out his frustrations by indicting Cheney & Gonzales, and being snotty with the Judge who he blames for his election loss. The guy's a whack job.
Gotta be, but he did cause the headline, "Cheney Indicted".
Wonder how many on the Grand Jury are illegal?
