FL Prosecutor
in Trayvon Case = McCain & Rubio Donor

Angela B. Corey, the state special prosecutor investigating the death of Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, announced today she is not using a grand jury in the case. The arrest and charging of Zimmerman, along with not facing any charges, are all options Corey has at her disposal after concluding the investigation.

For what it's worth, Federal Election Commission records reveal Corey in 2008 donated $500 to John McCain's presidential campaign, and $250 in 2010 to Marco Rubio's senatorial bid.

The donations are in no way a disqualifying factor, neither do they raise alarms just because Corey gave to two Republican candidates, but they nevertheless deserve some attention because the key law enforcement figures in the Martin murder should be thoroughly vetted and all potential conflicts of interest or overt bias need much sunshine.
