I had lost track of Democratic political consultant Hank Morris some time ago; I knew him as a Democratic campaign consultant in the 1970s and 1980s, and one who always seemed reasonably honest and candid. So I was shocked to see this. Morris's lawyer says he's innocent. I find that hard to believe, but I also find it hard to believe that Morris would be involved in a scam like this. Though $30 million is a lot of money. What could have been going on in his mind?
