Lawyers and 527s

Democrats are having ten minutes of fun over this one. Oliver Willis (love his slogan: “like kryptonite to stupid”) is just one example:

Like Nixon, maybe GWB should do the right thing and resign over this campaign scandal too.

Lawyer Advising Vets Quits Bush Campaign
An election lawyer for President Bush who also has been advising a veterans group running TV ads against Democrat John Kerry resigned Wednesday from Bush’s campaign.

“I cannot begin to express my sadness that my legal representations have become a distraction from the critical issues at hand in this election,” Benjamin Ginsberg wrote in a resignation letter to Bush released by the campaign.

But it doesn’t wash. Even the New York Times is playing fair and balanced with this story:

The campaign of Senator John Kerry shares a lawyer, Robert Bauer, with America Coming Together, a liberal group that is organizing a huge multimillion-dollar get-out-the-vote drive that is far more ambitious than the Swift boat group’s activities. Mr. Ginsberg said his role was no different from Mr. Bauer’s.

So, Oliver–how should Kerry handle the emerging “scandal” in his campaign?
