Jim Copland on honest services fraud

His new op-ed in the Washington Examiner, "Vague law is bad law", takes a look at the alarmingly amorphous statute now before the Supreme Court:

Justice Antonin Scalia has suggested that the law "would seemingly cover a salaried employee's phoning in sick to go to a ballgame." ...As Scalia notes, the statute "invites abuses by headline-grabbing prosecutors" who hope to advance their careers by collecting high-profile scalps.
