State Bar Clears Rodham of Violating Legal Ethics

From Times Wire Reports

Hugh Rodham was cleared by the Florida Bar of violating rules of legal ethics in pocketing $400,000 from two convicted felons after successfully lobbying his brother-in-law, then-President Clinton, to pardon them, the Miami Herald reported.

Rodham, 50, a Florida lawyer, requested pardons for convicted drug trafficker Carlos Vignali and businessman Glenn Braswell, and collected $200,000 from each of them after the pardons were granted. Rodham returned the money at the request of the Clintons, who said they were unaware of the deal.
