Timesheets and Presidential Politics

Once again, timesheets are responsible for more trouble in the world.

Presidential candidate Fred Thompson is in the firing line of the drive-by media (a Limbaughism) for providing “advice to a colleague about one of his law firm’s new clients: The man representing the two Libyan intelligence officials charged in the terrorist bombing” of Pan Am Flight 103.

Where did they dig this up? You guessed it — his timesheet.

According to the New York Times, “Marc L. Fleischaker, confirmed that Mr. Thompson, who is now seeking the Republican presidential nomination, briefly provided Mr. Culver with advice about the suspects’ case, billing the firm for 3.3 hours of his time.”
