Fieger acquitted

Acquitted on charges of federal campaign fraud, as was his law partner, Ven Johnson. (AP story.)

From just reading the news coverage, it seemed like the prosecution really didn't have its act together. And Gerry Spence is very good. Spence said last week this is his last trial; he goes out on a victory.

As for Fieger, he goes on his merry, abusive ways. From the Detroit Free Press, Fieger: "I'm very pleased with the American system and the jury. I thank the jury for listening. I hope this puts an end to political prosecutions in the age of Mr. Bush."
