Voorhis Immigration Story Another Anchor Around Ritter

Over at Human Events, Ross Kaminsky (aka Rossputin) provides a detailed chronicle of the burgeoning story of immigration enforcement agent Cory Voorhis, who is facing political vengeance for his role in exposing information about now-Gov. Bill Ritter's record during last year's campaign:
Voorhis is not just the regular agent, but an exceptional agent. He followed written guidance from his superiors and broken no law but is being politically prosecuted by Bill Ritter’s allies for pointing out how Ritter, while serving as Denver’s District Attorney, obstructed ICE from deporting illegal alien criminals.

The good news is that this will likely be a political disaster for Ritter despite his ability to blunt its impact in 2006. The bad news is that it may cost a good man everything he’s worked for and cost the country an exceptional agent and the conviction of an illegal immigration kingpin.

Read the entire story.

Continuing media exposure of Voorhis' unfair treatment and Ritter's own shoddy immigration enforcement record will be another anchor around a governor whose popularity ratings already are in decline.
