Ah, Florida, cradle of justice. One day, when they document the great codifiers of the law, the names will ring out: Hammurabi, Solon, Justinian, Blackstone, Napoleon, Tallahassee. Last Friday, the state that's hosted the politically ugly Trayvon Martin reality show handed down a 20-year sentence against Marissa Alexander.
Angela Corey, the special prosecutor appointed to handle the Trayvon Martin case, has come under fire for what some regard as a deeply flawed indictment of George Zimmerman. Now Gawker pal Joseph Culligan, proprietor of Web of Deception, has noticed a strange wrinkle in the financial disclosures Corey has filed with the state of Florida: For every year since 2006, Corey has disclosed credit card debt, often with amounts as high as $75,000. Except for 2007. That year, she disclosed none. And 2007 happened to be the first year Corey filed a disclosure while running for statewide office. Weird.
