Feds Raid Gibson Guitar Factory, Without Explaining Why

A million dollar's worth of property seized, and the feds won't say why.

The company guesses that the raid is over a claim of violation of the Lacey Act, which harasses US importers of foreign wood (to protect foreign forests (!)); but Gibson says its imported wood was all certified for export.

And yet that is just a guess. They still haven't been told anything.

It has come out that Juszkiewicz is a Republican donor, while the CEO of one of his principal competitors, C.F. Martin & Company, is a Democratic donor. Martin reportedly uses the same wood, but DOJ hasnít raided them, leading to speculation that the Obama administration is sending a warning to Republican businessmen that they had better not oppose his re-election, lest they face criminal investigations. Normally such speculation would not be credible, but Eric Holder has politicized the Department of Justice to a point where such questions must be taken seriously.
