By 4:30 pacific time a¬†petition¬†calling for the removal of Swartz’s prosecutor, U.S. District Attorney Carmen Ortiz, had already amassed over 19,000 signatures since it was created on Saturday.

It needs 25,000 signatures before it hits a threshold which will prompt the White House, which created the petition site, to review the matter and respond. The petition is here.
