90s Nostalgia

The Clintons were always so good at releasing bad news Friday afternoons at 5PM Eastern. Glad to see they haven't lost their touch. AP Friday 5:08 PM: Sen. Clinton's Finance Director Indicted

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (news - web sites)'s former finance director has been indicted on charges of causing false campaign finance reports to be filed with the Federal Election Commission (news - web sites), the Justice Department (news - web sites) said Friday.

The indictment of David Rosen, unsealed in Los Angeles, focuses on his fund-raising for an Aug. 12, 2000, gala for Clinton in Los Angeles. The New York Democrat was still first lady at the time.

While the event allegedly cost more than $1.2 million, the indictment said, Rosen reported contributions of about $400,000, knowing the figure to be false.
The indictment charged that Rosen provided some documents to the an FEC compliance officer but withheld the true costs of the event and provided false documents to substantiate the lower figure.

Yeah -- October 23, 2009 is a Friday, I'm thinking that might be a good pick...(Weeks, not months, eh?)

I stand corrected -- CBS has delivered! At first glance, it actually sounds somewhat serious and thorough...
