Interesting. Vardi's blog states as much:
"Still, the fact that federal prosecutors agreed to let Campos plead to a misdemeanor indicates that they wanted to avoid a trial that could have had wide-reaching consequences and impacted the government’s case against the indicted founders of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker."
Campos and Elie are clearly the pawns in this game.
