This is why attorneys were willing to take KK as a client and not get paid. They know that high profile people offer a springboard to career opportunities.

Fieger used Kervorkian.
Several used OJ.

What I can't seem to find after watching it on a couple of news reports is:

Kwame only has to pay $11,000 back of over a millions of illegal spent campian money.

You might gain by reading these things before commenting. This case never involved illegally spending a million dollars. The $11,000 settlement involves repaying $10,000 that was improperly spend from campaign funds toward his attorney plus $1,000 fine for doing so. The fine is only $1,000. This story was built up by the press somehow conjuring up the idea that such an infraction could result in a $975,000 fine. This accounts for how you may have latched on to the million dollar figure.

Again, it's a $1,000 fine on a $10,000 infraction.
