How does Arcuri intend to translate that experience into a qualification for Congress? It's trickier than it might seem, given that the job of a member of the House of Representatives is to write the law and oversee the Executive, rather than to enforce the law, as a prosecutor or district attorney does.
Yet, Arcuri has found a way to make the connection: To position himself as a tough guy enforcer who still respects the rule of law.
"I'm a prosecutor. I'm a DA. I have signed more wiretap applications than people in this room. I've done more search warrant applications in the middle of the night, and three in the morning, than the people in this room. I understand what we need. I understand how important it is to get a wiretap. I understand how important it is to get a search warrant, a certain criterion that must be met, and that this Administration is not meeting."
Of course, the more perceptive of you will note that this position is in contrast to George W. Bush more than it is to Les Roberts, Bruce Tytler, or Mike Arcuri. Then again, isn't every Democrat in America running against Bush this year?
