Michigan: Feiger was acquitted, but now faces the FEC

The Detroit News reports: Though acquitted of criminal campaign finance charges, Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger still faces possible civil prosecution by the Federal Elections Commission for reimbursing employees and others for donations to the 2004 presidential campaign of Democrat John Edwards.

The commission, which normally will not say whether it is conducting an investigation, confirmed in an April 9, 2007, court filing in a federal civil case that it had opened an inquiry into Fieger in 2006.

Federal officials said this week that civil investigation has been on hold pending the resolution of criminal charges brought against Fieger in 2007. -- Fieger may face civil charges from FEC
