The friends of Lynne Stewart


Byron York reports this morning on National Review Online that none other than George Soros is a major funder of Lynne Stewart's criminal defense effort. Supposedly, the Open Society Institute, Soros's "charity," believed that civil liberties issues were at stake in the case.

Soros, of course, was a major funder of groups aiming to defeat President Bush and elect John Kerry. Are the Democrats the "Party of Lynne Stewart"?
