All those tax dollars and all those weeks of a trial equaled Roger Clemens being acquitted on all charges this afternoon.
And of course absolutely no one should be surprised.
Clemens was charged with six counts of perjury for denying to Congress in 2008 that he took steroids. His trial involved nearly two months of testimony from more than 40 witnesses, including Clemens’ wife and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, and the overall case stretched over two years.
What a colossal waste of time, money, and energy.
