Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is being called to suspend her presidential campaign after an Associated Press story published Tuesday showed she may have mishandled a case while she was Hennepin County's District Attorney.
As the county DA, Klobuchar led the case against Myon Burrell, who was a teenager at the time and was sentenced to life in prison for the 2002 murder of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards. The AP story revealed that Klobuchar prosecuted Burrell, now 33, despite there being little evidence and even though his co-defendant confessed to the crime and said Burrell wasnt there.
Though Klobuchar was not the countys top prosecutor the second time Burrell was convicted after filing an appeal, she reportedly denied his request to attend his mothers funeral, claiming he was a threat to society.
In past debates, Klobuchar has touted her tough-on-crime stance as a Minneapolis prosecutor, and during her first Senate campaign, she recounted Burrell's conviction among others as her finding justice for black families who lost their children to gun violence.
On Wednesday, the Racial Justice Network, Minneapolis NAACP, Black Lives Matter Twin Cities, Twin Cities Coalition for Justice for Jamar, and Communities United Against Police Brutality all asked Klobuchar to suspend her White House bid. Edwards's father has also come out saying he believes Burrell may have been wrongfully convicted.
What I need people to understand is this isnt about partisanship and this isnt about politics, Leslie Redmond, president of the Minneapolis NAACP said in a press conference. This is about justice ... This isnt just a situation that happened to the Central Park Five alone. This is a situation that happens all around America. This is a situation that happens right here in Minnesota.

Systematically removing all of the obstacles needed for Hillary brokered convention.
Is there another side to this story?
Looks like the Fake SJW Outrage Factory has decided to work overtime this week on The Klobuchar Problem.
Comments at The Hill are worth reading.
On one hand, I think Trump would obliterate Hillary. But of course, I cannot know. I know he will drive her absolutely insane with tweets and commentary during any such campaign. Of course I would relish a scenario in which Hillary is driven completely insane. I also think, believe it or not that enough information will be out on the filthy tricks the Hillary campaign ran against Trump by that time so that she will not be able to win.
That would be a first.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer piece of Democrite Schiff.
Looks more like the Left’s identity groups eating their own. Remember, these are more temporarily allied competing parasites than anything else.
“Couldnt happen to a nicer piece of Democrite Schiff.”
Yah schure . you betcha
LOL.......sums her up nicely.
Weird how it all comes together, hmmmm.........
I didn’t think her numbers were high enough that she would even be considered a problem.
It does appear Democratic candidates are being targeted one-by-one.
another one bites the dust
"How about a bucket of Trump Water, Wicked Witch of The Left?"
Cruella DeKlobuchar is in the way.

Clearing the way for Hillary seems to be the consensus. I just didn’t think she could slow down any of the front runners even for a second...but I’m sure having “insurance” doesn’t hurt.
