Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Conspiracy Theory

Since alot of bloggers have their conspiracy theories about the clemency granting of Lovitt, I have one on a larger scale.
It seems to me that in light of this case, where the evidence was destroyed too early, that an anti-death penalty clerk could order evidence be destroyed in hopes that it would result in a situation like this one.
I have no idea what this type of behavior would result in, so if someone with knowledge of this subject would please debunk why this will not happen, I would certainly appreciate it.
I am interested to hear if this is a real possibility.
God forbid our County Clerk elections become about their death-penalty stances, but I can see it happening.

    GOPHokie, please...this theory is beneath you. If such conspiracy did exist, it would be far more likely that the disappearance of evidence would be to thwart the defence effort to perform further DNA tests. Fact is, people are fallible and mistakes happen, but usually not quite so publicly.

    Hence why it is a very far fetched conspiracy theory.

    The same thing crossed my mind because it was Arlington.
