Washington Post: Supreme Court hears soap opera story of interest to the tea party

The Washington Post reports:

“Carol Bond, a trained microbiologist, set out to poison Myrlinda Haynes over several months with a rare and potentially lethal blend of toxic chemicals. But Haynes, who received only a minor injury, was unable to persuade local law enforcement officials to act on her suspicions. So she called in the feds.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Philadelphia went after Bond with a “sledgehammer,” according to her lawyer, former Bush administration solicitor general Paul D. Clement: Prosecutors sent Bond to prison under the anti-terrorist statutes meant to enforce an international chemical-weapons treaty.”
