Former Bill Clinton White House counsel Abner Mikva is at it again, defending the ethics of Democrats on the pages of the Chicago Sun-Times. Today, he comes to the aid of Barack Obama because of a story about campaign contributions.
Before anyone gets overly impressed with the nice op-ed, Mikva made a similar defense of scandal-plagued Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's ethics in a Sun-Times op-ed less than a year ago.
Both Obama and Blagojevich share indicted businessman Tony Rezko as a close friend. Maybe Mikva can do a Rezko op-ed next.
