Pierce O’Donnell Indicted Over Edwards Funds

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

Pierce O’Donnell, the prominent Los Angeles attorney who most famously represented Art Buchwald in his case against Paramount in the early 1990s, was indicted by a federal grand jury for funneling campaign contributions through his law firm’s employees and then reimbursing them, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Although a candidate wasn’t named in the indictment, O’Donnell raised money for John Edwards in 2004, and the Edwards campaign that year returned the contributions.

O’Donnell’s lawyers have questioned whether the indictment is politically motivated, given that he has been a critic of the Bush administration and is representing victims of Hurricane Katrina against the government, the Times reports.

Westside Wonders: Time’s Joel Stein profiles Los Angeles’ “most important connector” in Democratic politics: Heather Thomas, who hosts regular salons at her Brentwood home. A choice nugget: Thomas is planning a YouTube video to go with her new book “Trophies.” Stein explains, “In the video, Gore Vidal narrates while dolls — one of which is voiced
by Catherine Bach — act out a scene in which they talk about very dirty
things while planning a fund raiser. It’s a lot like Sex and the City, if Carrie and Samantha got husbands and all the shoes they wanted and then got so bored that they tried to end the war in Iraq.”
