So your defense is "But Mom!, little Dickie did it too!!!"
BTW, Custer Battles was exonerated in court...apparently, the court ignored left wing hysteria.
"In March 2006, a jury found Custer Battles liable for the submission of 5 false claims, each one of which is subject to a US$5,000 -11,000 civil fine, as well as 26 false statements supporting the 5 false claims. However, in August 2006, Judge Ellis, of the Federal District Court in Alexandria, Va overturned the verdict as a matter of law. Judge Ellis's ruling was, in turn, reversed by the Fourth Circuit in April 2009, in effect reinstating the jury verdict."
exonerated-- not the case.
