This is bugging me:
Let's say you are the chief investigator in a drug operation. You have wire taps approved by the court, and you find a suspect who is setting up a drug deal with a buyer...they've talked about it on the phone and you have tapes...so you move in and arrest the dealer before the drugs are in place and the buyer has handed over the money and taken possession of the drugs.
You get no drugs and all you've got is two guys talking about a deal.
Then, let's say you are an investigator looking into a governor of a large state potentially trying to sell a friggin' United States Senate seat. You get him on tape talking about doing it, but...you move in before he closes the deal.
Shouldn't the investigator have kept tape rolling and tracking the dinero as the governor and his co-conspirator close the deal?
Man, I wish they'd have waited a few weeks!
On the plus side, maybe Governor Blagojevich will give me my 80 dollars back. So much for Senator Buddha.
