    Default Re: Rangel Snags Endorsement From Teamsters Union

    Lotta talk, stemming from last night’s debate, about the Weather Underground. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, is friendly with a former member. Sen. Hillary Clinton’s husband commuted the jail sentences of two former members.
    What’s the Clinton connection?

    One former member of the Weather Underground, Linda Sue Evans, was in 1985 sentenced to five years in prison carrying a gun and for harboring a fugitive — Marilyn Buck, who drove the getaway car during the Black Liberation Army’s notorious Brink’s armored car robbery in Nanuet, NY, where a Brink’s guard and two police officers were killed. Evans was then tried for previous crimes. She got five years for conspiring to bomb the U.S. Capitol in 1983, since she had helped forge IDs for others involving in the bombing. She also was sentenced to 30 years on gun charges — for using false identification to buy three rifles, a pistol, and ammo.

    Evans served 16 years, but in January 2001 her sentence was commuted by then-President Bill Clinton.

    Another former member, Susan Rosenberg was in 1984 caught in possession of 740 pounds of dynamite intended for use in terrorist attacks. She was sentenced to 58 years in prison. Rosenberg was also allegedly involved in the Brink’s robbery.

    In 2001, then-President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence, freeing her, in an action widely covered at the time as a pardon.

    Asked today if Sen. Clinton thought it was wrong for her husband to free Evans and Rosenberg, a Clinton campaign spokesman refused to answer the question.

    As you may recall, Barack Obama in the infamous ABC debate last week, responded to probing of his Bill Ayers connection by mentioning that Hillary Clinton's husband had pardoned two former Ayers-related radicals also associated with the Weathermen. It got new attention today from Newsday but I have a connection myself: The murders linked to the two pardoned prisoners took place about a mile from my home near Nyack, N.Y.

    Every few days I drive past the spot, which holds a marker in tribute to the two law enforcement officers -- Waverly Brown and Edward O'Grady -- who died in 1981 in what is known here as "The Brinks Crime" or "Brinks Murders." And believe me, the Clinton clemency is still a tremendously sensitive subject in this part of the state, and among all police and other law officers, peaking in the years 2000 and 2001, but still hot today whenever it is mentioned. The Nyack post office is named after the officers killed that day
    So it is preposterous for Clinton to claim that she had never really heard about the case -- if you recall, she was running for senator from New York in 2000.

    In an interview yesterday, Hillary Clinton told Inside Edition that she "didn't know anything about" the 2001 clemency case.
