“Legal Standard for ‘Willful’ Violations Of Campaign Law Considered by Court”

Bloomberg BNA: “The legal standard to prove a ‘willful’ violation of campaign finance laws is being debated by federal prosecutors and defense lawyers in a major criminal case, with the Justice Department being accused of backing away from a standard used previous cases and enshrined in DOJ guidelines. The legal battle was revealed in recent court filings in the long-running case, which involves Virginia businessmen William Danielczyk and Eugene Biagi. The two are charged with funneling illegal corporate contributions to the 2008 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, now President Obama’s secretary of state.”
