No, it just means they really wanted to get him. Its like busting a mafia guy on tax evasion charges. They couldn't find anything else to hit them with so they just slap them with wire/mail fraud.

I can safely say that I don't feel even the least bit bad about this. Prosecute the cheaters to the fullest extent of the law. They make those of us who actually DO work in the government look bad.

Some of us really do care about the mission.
