Assessing high profile sentences post-Booker

This morning's papers have a couple articles examing a few high-profile government-corruption sentences.  This article in the New York Times compares (and raises disparity concerns) about the recent federal sentences handed out to John Rowland, the former governor of Connecticut, and Robert Janiszewski, the former Hudson County executive in New Jersey.   And this article from Wisconsin reports on a Seventh Circuit remand in another fraud case involving a government official in Milwaukee.  Both pieces suggest that government-corruption sentences might be an especially interesting and important category of cases to follow closely in the post-Booker world.
