Best part? The response from Idema's lawyer calling ANG Newspapers patsies:

Meanwhile, Idema's lawyer, John Tiffany of New Jersey, when asked about the allegations that Idema received money from Alocozy's transfer service, said he believes ANG Newspapers is "being used" by federal agents running a smear campaign to discredit Idema.

While Idema awaits appeal in Afghani courts, Alocozy, who has been very cooperative according to reports (he had shut the business down in 2003) continues to operate his pizzeria in Hayward. The ICE, of course, says the investigation wouldn't have been possible without the new registration requirements for remittance businesses. Wait, the Patriot Act regulates business? Maybe some free-market fundamentalist swing-votes might keep the new version from passing.
