This absolutely absurd. You've got two past Florida Bar Presidents raising money for a guy who was indicted by the federal government. If this doesn't show what a good ole boy network The Florida Bar is, I don't know what would.

Are we going to have a fundraiser for the Medellin Cocaine Cartel Defense Fund as well?

Excellent idea!

Ben Kuehne certainly knows how to charge his clients a pretty penny. He should have enough money to pay for his own lawyers several times over. And if he doesn't, then shame on him all over again.

What "principal" [sic] is involved here? The principle that an allegedly savvy lawyer can get around the RICO statute by certifying that a drug cartel's money is clean? Is the principle that is at stake is that the federal government could not POSSIBLY be right about this and that three (not two) former Florida Bar Presidents are serving the public interest by asserting that Kuehne could not possibly have done anything wrong here? Look at Florida Bar Rule 4-8.2(a) and tell me that Dimond, Angones, and Coxe are not breaking it by this stunt? Jack Thompson
