Bleeding Heartland: U.S. attorney candidate Rose didn't design Postville prosecutions

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Lynda Waddington posted an interesting story at Iowa Independent about
a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruling announced yesterday. The
decision may become an issue at confirmation hearings if President
Barack Obama takes Senator Tom Harkin's advice and nominates Stephanie
Rose for U.S. attorney in Iowa's Northern District. ... My immediate
question was how this ruling might affect Stephanie Rose, whom Harkin
has recommended for U.S. attorney in Iowa's Northern District. The
president has not yet nominated a candidate for this position. Some
critics say Rose is not fit for the job because of her role in
prosecuting those detained during the Postville raid.
