Seems that the Scooter Defense Fund did not contribute to the funds that I. Lewis used to pay his fine yesterday. So the dollars came from other sources; I'm sure that Scooter has a lot of friends with plenty of long green.
By the way, the SDF has raised $5 million. A lot of money, right? But at $500 an hour--which is probably less than his lead counsel charges--that's 1,000 hours, and I'd bet the case has taken that much time already, with the appeal process hardly begun. So Scooter's friends had better go back to beating the bushes (no pun intended).
While you're at it, take a look at this portrait of Mel Sembler, the guy who heads the defense fund. Not just another child abuser; he made money at it.
