Sali: I’ve Been Vindicated

Item: Former Rep. Bill Sali says elections panel cleared him" The former Idaho congressman says he and his staff did nothing wrong in late campaign reports/Erica Bolstad, Idaho Statesman

More Info: At the time, Sali's campaign blamed software problems. Only one other member of Congress, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, had also failed to file a report that same quarter. ... Sali's campaign criticized press inquiries into his reports and complained that reporters had overemphasized the importance of disclosure forms in congressional races. In his recent e-mail to supporters, the subject line was "Media Bias." "The media and the Walt Minnick campaign ignored my explanation, and my staff and I were openly accused of simply being incompetent." "My staff and I have now been officially vindicated by the FEC," he added.

Question: Do you agree with Sali that he has been vindicated by the Federal Election Commissin admission?
