    Isn't this a waste of tax payer's money? Not to mention a political which hunt by the RW DA? Does he need to be tried like he is now? Did he break a law? If so what law did he break?

    What say you?

    I think diverting Campaign Funds is a real problem, Marc. It is what it is.

    No, don't give me the "it is what is is" crap.

    What CRIME was committed here?

    Please answer...if you can.

    What's the name of the crime?

    And recently The Witch from Delaware was running for office, she used funds inappropriately as well, to pay for her living expenses. I suppose she should be hunted down and hauled before a tribuna...I mean...jury as well...right?

    Ya cause the DA fabricated the charges out of thin air. It is a Felony to steal funds from ones campaign for private matters. He not only stole them he hide the fact he did it.

    The case of USA v. Johnny Reid Edwards contains six counts, including conspiracy, four counts of illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements.
