O’Bell (now of Magnum fame) was one of Calvin’s “contract” attorneys who wrote me an email a while back telling me how Calvin gave him and 2 other attorneys written instructions to make a check payable to a Senator. He also wrote that he received verbal orders from Calvin for other contributions. O’Bell told me he was instructed to “work the contributions into expenses on a class action case” where he was reimbursed for his contributions.
I really want to post that email because it’s very insightful, but O’Bell has threatened to sue me if I make it public.
