We have posted previously about an apparent Department of Justice campaign to investigate donors to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards.
And we noted that such a campaign might have been behind the prosecution of Mississippi attorney Paul Minor, a major Edwards donor. The Minor case has been the subject of numerous posts here at Legal Schnauzer, and documents related to the case were presented at the recent U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearing on selective prosecution.
Now we have a report that the targeting of Democratic donors might have been more widespread than was first thought.
Scott Horton, of Harper's, notes that he when he originally posted on the subject, he received a number of comments saying his focus was "too narrow." Now Horton cites a recent Associated Press story about an investigation of a Hillary Clinton donor. This indicates that the scheme might indeed go beyond the Edwards campaign.
