"But the corruption charges against Vigil-Giron and others are a different challenge. The defendants are smart, the evidence a forensic jigsaw puzzle and the defense lawyers formidable adversaries."
This is King-Speak for we don't have a case and never did. Formidable adversaries? The Attorney General is up against 4 lawyers in that case, one for each defendant, each juggling dozens of other cases. King's prosecutors work on the 3 corruption cases full time. At their disposal they have the resources of the agency to draw on, especially the unit of highly trained specialists he created just for these cases, at a cost of millions of dollars. That includes investigators, forensic experts, computer experts, support staff, supervisors and attorneys. King has 160 people on his payroll, the largest law firm in the state.
The real challenge is how he could not defend to a judge why he included a former employee supervisor that worked for him. Imagine being prosecuted by the people you had once fired or disciplined.
Ego and fear of being exposed for this led King to hang onto this case for so long, he has caused speedy trial issues.

90 minutes, are you kidding me?! That is the most time King has spent at the office in 5 years.
I mean wow, he has had 9 trips to Europe already as reported in the other article.

Kings political career is over, done, he's toast, stick a fork in him! And did I mention as our AG, he doesn't understand right from wrong by signing someone elses name to legal documents?

King may have been ranch raised, but he has become very comfortable with the urban lice that have invaded the west. He is a go along get along kind of guy, still protecting his partisan cronies, in the shadow of Bill Richardson. Unfortunatly our new Governor, dispite her promise of being a corruption fighter hasn't the spine to stand on Gary's head and make him perform. Looks like we get more of the same here in the land of entrapment folks.
