Campbell Case: Great Testimony But Will It Still Be Standing Tomorrow

The Bill Campbell trial had some compelling testimony, with the Atlanta Jrl Constitution reporting here that "[b]usinessman C.R. 'Ronnie' Thornton, . . . told jurors that he gave Campbell's re-election campaign more than $126,000 illegally in 1997."  The problem with the testimony is that despite the payment, he did not receive the city contract.  Will the jury think that this sounded like a motive for testifying against Campbell?

Bill Campbell is innocent, he did nothing to hurt Atlanta, if anything he improved it city. The Government should be ashamed of theirselves for making his close friends lie on him just so the Government could hear what they wanted to hear, just unacceptable.
