Remember Scooter Libby? He’s the one that lied to investigators regarding the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame. President Bush commuted Libby’s 30-month sentence, saying,

”My decision to commute (Mr. Libby’s) prison sentence leaves in place a harsh punishment for Mr. Libby. The reputation he gained through his years of public service and professional work in the legal community is forever damaged. His wife and young children have also suffered immensely. He will remain on probation. The significant fines imposed by the judge will remain in effect. The consequences of his felony conviction on his former life as a lawyer, public servant, and private citizen will be long-lasting.”

Marion Jones has been stripped of her medals, her endorsements, her money, and her career. Her reputation is forever damaged. Her family, including her two young children, have suffered and will continue to suffer immensely. The consequences of her admission to steroid use will be long-lasting. In addition to all of that, she’ll also have a prison record — Scooter Libby will not. Here’s what Judge Karas said at Marion Jones’ sentencing:

“I want people to think twice before lying,” Judge Karas said in Marion Jones case. “I want to make them realize no one is above the law.”

Libby placed another woman’s life in jeopardy. The life most affected by Jones’ action was her own. Both were untruthful with investigators. However, Libby is a friend of the Bush-Cheney-Rove administration (the true axis of evil), and with that kind of power, even murderous intent can be wiped away with the stroke of a pen.

It’s easier to make an example out of Jones, who has no political connections or complications. The former hero, fallen from grace — the mother, the icon, the broken spirit — will serve her six months in prison, after which she’ll serve 800 hours of community service, and two years of probation.
