Maureen Dowd on Seth Williams

District Attorney Seth Williams's crusade against errant priests has made an impression on New York Times columunis Maureen Dowd.

But it is what it is. I wish I knew the Latin translation for that."

“There’s no get-out-of-jail-free card for raping, sodomizing, groping, doing anything wrong to kids,” Williams said.
