Again, We Implore You To Follow Jim Schutze’s Continuing Coverage of the Don Hill Corruption Trial

It’s good stuff, and it’s right here. A sample:

[Defense lawyer Victor] Vital got [Housing Department director Jerry] Killingsworth to concede there is a preference for projects that use these bonds, because it makes money for the DHFC. He finally got him to say that [Brian] Potashnik’s projects were more desirable because he used these local bonds. So now Vital has established a basis on which to argue that [Laura] Miller, who received fat campaign contributions from Potashnik, paid back by putting Potashnik on this task force thing and putting him in a position to give himself a competitive edge over Fisher, his former employee who had become his main competitor.

All of that goes to the defense’s argument: How come all these black guys are on trial when the rich white lady who was mayor was taking money from the same guy, Potashnik, who is the accused briber in this case?
