Green Party Zimmermann Trial Discussion

From the Text Clips blog, Dave Bicking ( a 2005 Green Party candidate for the Minneapolis City Council):

"First of all, contrary to what Julie says, it is NOT illegal to take
large sums of cash from a developer. I would also argue (and here I would expect and respect some disagreement), that it was also not unethical in this case. The relevant issue is not the money changing hands, or whether it is cash or checks. The issue, legally and ethically, is the intent. That is what makes it a bribe or not."


"No, and Dean is no more an idiot than you or I - he got that cash out of sight as quickly as possible."
