Rosen Acquitted of Campaign Reporting Charges

David Rosen, the former national finance director for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (referred to as "Senator A"), was acquitted of two counts of filing false campaign finance statements with the Federal Election Commission.  An AP story (here) reports that the jury was out approximately 6 hours before it returned the "not guilty" verdict.  Rosen's testimony resonated with the jury, who accepted his position that he got in over his head and was not responsible for any misreporting of contributions.  As in other high profile cases, the decision whether to have the defendant testify turned out to be crucial to the outcome.
