    Fieger probably broke the law, big time, by anonymously funneling nearly half a million dollars into a judicial race, but he still might beat the charges. Cox has come off as vindictive, and the fact that the wives of two Supreme Court justices work in his office don't exactly give him a "clean hands" reputation.

    I'm not sure about the federal charges involving laundering money to Edwards's 2004 primary campaign through his employees. The feds aren't about to make the mistake Cox did--namely, comment on an investigation before it was finished.

    Every Saturday, there's a new weekly roundup of Michigan politics here on Daily Kos.

      You need to remember that the Supreme Court elections are "non-partistan" and at the same time Gov Engler was actively campaigning for the candidates that the Republicans nominated.

      There is no limit on how much an individual or group can spend on "issue" ads. If Cox want to look into "issue ad spending" he should also look into the acivities of Dick and Betsey De Vos. Their pac sent out mailings just before the primary here in Allegan County supporting Fulton Sheen because of his "ethics and right thinking" (his primary residence isn't inside the district as is required by state law, but he is not the only Republican who's indistrict mailing address is a minimally furnished apartment or rented house)

      The special prosecuter should not only look at Feiger, he/she should also investigate De Vos, Cox, Engler, and Land. I am sure they supported "issue ads " attacking or supporting Supreme Court  candidates.
