Will Silky Give The Money Back?

Of course, being a Democrat, he couldn’t possibly have know or been involved in any sort of culture of corruption, right?

Detroit attorney Geoffrey Fieger, best known for his high-profile defense of assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian, was charged on Friday with conspiring to channel $127,000 in illegal contributions to the 2004 presidential campaign of Democrat John Edwards.

According to a federal indictment unsealed on Friday, Fieger, 56, and legal partner Vernon Johnson, 45, worked to solicit over 60 "straw donors" from among employees, their families and vendors to their firm in 2003 and 2004.

The indictment, which was returned by a grand jury on Tuesday, claims that Fieger then arranged to reimburse those "straw donors" for their contributions to Edwards in payments disguised as bonuses or payments for services.

Prosecutors said that constituted a conspiracy to skirt regulations barring corporate contributions to federal elections and limiting individual donors to $2,000 each.

Give the money back, John! You know damn well that if Edwards was a Republican, the Dems would be out in front of every camera they can find, as well as putting out press release after press release. Speaking of Republicans

Fieger released a statement saying that the charges against him were false and that the prosecution was politically motivated by the Republican Bush administration.

Nothing like a little BDS, eh? Considering that Bush beat Kerry/Edwards, I doubt they would even bother. Republicans tend not to be as petty and vindictive as Democrats, who not only have to beat an opponent politically, but destroy them personally.
