Are they sure they didn’t just commit suicide? Throwing themselves from windows? Infecting themselves with destructive viruses? just saying?

They weren't stolen... they were recycled.

Select Comfort, because Blago will be sleeping a little bit better, but not as well as if he had a select comfort bed.

"Gimme a break. It’s a law firm and they don’t back up their data? Puhleeze. "

Exactly! There are hundreds of ways to back up data these days, both on and off premise. You can't tell me that a law firm large enough to handle the Blagojevich case doesn't "network" and have auto-backup.

I hope all of their prospective and future clients take note of this.

Did they steal ALL of the computers, or just Blago's evidence computers?...just askin'.

The law firm does have backups of all the data. They do it routinely.

The climate scientists aren’t that smart.

Liberals have the worst luck hanging on to their computer data.

(Thanks for posting the article).

(A)The younger Adam confirmed the burglary this afternoon but said everything that was taken is backed up on other computers in his offices.

(B)”We did have some computers stolen, and we will not speculate on any motivation that might be behind it,” Adam said. “We’re trying to determine now what they did and did not take.”


Does anyone else see the problem here?

Perhaps the computers are in hiding, or contemplating suicide. In any event, WELCOME TO CHICAGO!

Is that the lawyers or the computers in that vat? or both?

Maybe this is the reason our 2nd amendment rights do not apply in Illinois. Actual Americans living in the state would blow politicians away every damned day.

Somewhere there is a ‘social director’ in the mix.

looks like these computers belonged to Blago’s DEFENSE attorneys...should not affect the prosecutor’s case (unless handing over the only copies to the defendant is SOP in Chicago...)

In the story, Mr. Adam (jr) says they aren't sure what was taken yet.

He also declares that he is sure it was backed up

He also mentions that he's 'almost' sure it won't cause a DELAY. He even mentions it twice.

Sure, sure,sure.

After Blago ‘s trial it will be found in Lake Michigan, along with a few voting machines.

“Blagojevich evidence stolen from his lawyers’ offices”

My question is: How do THEY know they contained any evidence?

Of course they do. That doesn't mean that "evidence" is live on their network. Those computers were probably sitting disconnected in a closet somewhere.

Information dump most likely, but don’t rule out they show up all over the internet as in Climategate.

I hope so. The thought crossed my mind too. Surely attorneys have back ups. This may be another Climategate exposure. I sure hope so.
