MSM reporters–having deemed it unnecessary to report on whether a leading, active Democratic pol, third-place presidential candidate and likely cabinet official cheated on his ill wife while making a big show of his loyalty and then lied about it to the public —have found an angle sufficiently tedious to be worth discussing with their readers: a possible campaign finance violation! Why does that prospect produce sudden investigative lust? Because government investigations of campaign finance violations can last years, involving lots of lawyers and government investigators who can then leak the fruits of their subpoena power to reporters in time to let everyone make it home for their kids’ soccer game. And not even the Columbia Journalism Review will object. … Unfortunately, as difficult as it is to not break some campaign finance law, the payments from Edwards’s PAC to Rielle Hunter’s film company may actually have been legal, according to the WSJ.
