Clinton aide strikes deal after admitting he took secret papers - World - www.smh.com.au

Sandy Berger, former National Security Advisor for the Clinton Administration, has reached a deal with prosecutors over his theft of several classified documents from the National Archives. The charges carry a penalty of up to one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.

The deal? In exchange for a guilty plea, Berger will pay only a $10,000 fine and serve no jail time at all. Compare this to what happened to Martha Stewart, who lied to protect a friend after taking advantage of an insider's stock tip and was sentenced to 5 months in prison for obstruction. I bet she wishes she had Berger's lawyer, and connections.

Something stinks here.
