Peter Paul to Plead Guilty; Will Testify Against Hillary Clinton Campaign Official

imagePeter Paul, one time business ally of Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee and driving force behind poster child for Internet economy fiascoes, Stan Lee Media, is expected to plead guilty to one count of stock manipulation today. This frees Paul up for testimony in one of those Rosetta Stone cases for political pundits: indictments against a Hillary Clinton campaign official accused of not reporting funds from a Paul-organized fundraising party in a way that allowed for a more beneficial distribution of financial assets to the Senator's election efforts.

Some believe that it was largely on Paul's advice that Lee pursued the deal with Marvel that is also in litigation now and may yield the lifetime Marvel employee a share of movie and related licensing profits.
