I am not alone I think in worrying that perhaps we criminalizing a lot of politics. I have some real reservations at times how this “honest services” cases are playing out.
Now we have an added twist in the State of Alabama in the widely watched "Bingo Gate" case that is in Federal Court. That is can a political contribution be a bribe? See BingoGate: Is a campaign contribution a “bribe?”
I really don't like the direction these cases are going.
