"... and besides, everybody does it ..."
There's a well-known lawyer joke involving defending a client accused of murder that goes, "Your Honour, my client wasn't even there. But if he was, he didn't do it. And even if he did it, it was an accident. Besides, that son of a bitch had it coming to him."
Welcome to the CPC illegal donation scandal: "We didn't break any laws. But if we did, it was an accident and entirely unintentional. And besides, everybody does it anyway."
How pathetic is it when your best defense is the rest of the world's lawyer joke?
