Last month, a federal grand jury in Los Angeles indicted O'Donnell on claims that he made illegal campaign contributions supporting an unnamed presidential candidate, believed to be John Edwards. The timing was no coincidence, say lawyers involved in the multibillion-dollar suit against the government.
