    TPM Muckraker was on this point earlier in the week:

    From January to March of this year, Ney spent $96,500 in legal fees to the law firm of Vinson & Elkins, FEC documents show. (V&E partner Mark Tuohey is Ney's attorney.) That's nearly 40 percent of his total campaign spending for the period -- $250,098.

    Is the guy running for Congress, or running from jail? What do his supporters think?
