This judge doesnt like to uphold the laws unless he LIKES them. :roll:

A furious federal judge said he may toss out the conviction of an ex-Homeland Security honcho caught hiring an illegal alien, after he berated prosecutors yesterday for their “aggressive and overreaching” handling of the case.
“It was a cleaning lady,” U.S. District court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock said of the Brazilian maid hired by Lorraine Henderson. “A cleaning lady. Not Al Capone.”
What started as the sentencing of the 52-year-old former federal port chief quickly was derailed by Woodlock, who threw prosecutors hypothetical questions about the law and lectured them on government tyranny.
