What is astonishing about this bit of news is who is on the 3 judge panel. You may recall my article noting the alleged unethical involvement of Karl Rove's former client, now judge, in the Minor bond appeal. Let me cite some of that information for you:

The federal judge who denied a prominent Democratic fundraiser's motion for release pending appeal last week is a former client and protégé of former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove.

On Aug. 15, US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Priscilla Owen upheld a lower court’s decision to keep Mississippi attorney Paul Minor in jail pending his appeal, adding more controversy to a case already steeped by allegations of both a politically motivated prosecution and conflicts of interest on the part of the US Attorney.
