Heard the name before?

If you watched the wrap up of the Boston sadness, you saw a lot of folks that you might not be familiar with unless you are from Boston.  But there was one we all know but may not love a lot more than the bombers.

That would be Carmen Ortiz who, operating for the SDNY AG, was involved in the Full Tilt and money handling prosecution.  But she has an interesting track record beyond shutting down poker.  She was involved in the prosecution of Aaron Schwartz.  He committed suicide after what many considered Aaron acting out against academic related excesses.   There was a White House petition for her removal from the AG staff for that described overreach.

But the Boston  Globe named her Bostonian of the year.

She is short and feisty and aimed at the surviving bomber.  Now, maybe poker can stay out of her sights.

    I saw her on TV and she seemed to have her act together.

    I imagine almost everyone did.  When it wrapped up well the pols showed up in force.  It appears she is in the hired gun category with lots of experience prosecuting only major cases.

    I was a bit amazed that the boat hadn’t been searched.  They said it was a block or so outside the main search but you’d think they’d have checked something that offered concealment like that covered boat.

    Imagine everything that went on, and then seeing a bloody guy in your boat!
