Scooter’s New Jersey friends

Three New Jerseyans are serving on the Lewis “Scooter” Libby Legal Defense Trust Advisory Committee: Lawrence Bathgate, Lewis Eisenberg and Steve Forbes. Libby, the former Chief of Staff to Vice President Richard Cheney, was indicted last year on perjury and obstruction of justice charges; his trial is set to begin in January 2007. The defense fund will help may at least one New Jerseyan, Ted Wells, a Democrat whose wife was named Secretary of State by Governor Jon Corzine.
