DA Jim Martin is looking sorta stressed ... was it something I said?

In a direct mail flyer sent out recently, Lehigh County District Attorney (for now) Jim Martin deceptively takes personal credit for "60,000" prosecutions and further deceives recipients w/ a phony "97%" conviction rate claim. In doing so, dim bulb DA Jim (hiccup) Martin inadvertently admits to blowing 1,800 prosecutions (3% of 60,000 = 1,800), so far, during his stumble-bum reign as DA. Here's a case Martin blew. Here's another one. Here's another one. And according to Jimbo there are 1,797 more DA Jim Martin losses where criminal defendants walked. Thanks for sharing, Jim.
