A Fine Day for Edwards

John Edwards's 2004 presidential campaign has agreed to pay a $9,500 fine for accepting illegal contributions from a prominent Little Rock trial lawyer and his law firm.

I'm, of course, opposed to all campaign-finance regulation. But my guess is that Edwards is not, and there was no lack of clarity at the time as to what went on here being illegal.

Hypocrisy from the insufferable huckster Edwards. Not a surprise.
