It’s been more than a year since Mr. Hamoodi of World Harvest reported to the federal prison in Leavenworth, KS. Despite near-universal recognition of this as a misapplication of justice, he sits there still, sharing a 9×7-foot cell with another inmate.
I stopped by the store the other day to pick up my CSA and load up on cheeses and ran into a St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer, there to shoot for a story on Mr. Hamoodi’s case. Apparently Sen. McCaskill has forwarded information on the case to President Obama, but she may not or may not be actively pushing for his release. Here’s the story, and worth a read even if you are familiar with Mr. Hammoodi’s case.
