Charles Manson's Attorney

Asks Obama For Help

2/22/2011 8:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charles Manson's lawyer has just sent a fax to President Obama, asking for mercy.

Barack Obama and Giovanni Di Stefano
Giovanni Di Stefano -- known as "The Devil's Advocate" -- tells TMZ, he wants the Prez to set Manson free.

Di Stefano -- who has also repped the likes of Saddam Hussein -- says Manson was nothing more than a cult leader, not a murderer -- Manson didn't do the killing.  Di Stefano says at worst, Manson is guilty of telling his followers to "do something witchy" -- never specifying murder.

Di Stefano complains, "Manson has been made out in America to be the Satan of the criminal justice system. He does not deserve the title."

p.s. to in-demand Manson sex-tapes.

Personally, I've always wanted a sex tape to pop up, so to speak, of Britney Spears.

My concern:

Can Manson still perform.

In the masculine sense?

Obama can hire him - he'll fit right in with all the other criminals on Obama's staff. He gets involved in beergate, now sends his goons to Wisconsin, this isn't that far away from what he's doing already. He apparently has enough time on his hands to involve himself in things the shouldn't but can't handle running the country nor foriegn affairs. 2012 can't come soon enough.

That lawyer has some balls, big balls.

I wonder how much money he'll make on this publicity stunt.

Obama is smarter than that, he's not going to et that psycho free.

That's just what we need Manson capitalizing on the REALITY SHOW CIRCUIT!

Could be an interesting show, what would they call it:

"Helter Skelter" "Mason's New Family" "Manson Feud" "Survivor: Manson Edition" "The Apprentice: Mason Family" "Teen Mom 3 with your host Mason"

That would be funny, Maci, Farrah, and Amber with Manson...I wonder if he will say something witchy to Maci and Farrah to take out Amber.

That action would never start a race war, in fact I doubt people would care.

So wait , we are actually IN agreement here that if someone instructs or encourages others to act out violently against someone then they themselves are guilty of the crime of violence... right?

Hi 'River Rat',totally agree with you,what a scary true account of what really happened by reading 'Helter Skelter',I remember the killings were done in '69 and I think the book came out in '75. Bugliosi did a great job on the book.

If you haven't gone to youtube and watched some of Charles Manson's interviews from prison, they are an absolute must see. The guy is crazier than a hoot owl but makes astonishing sense at times. Whether he did order the killing or not, the best place for him is in custody. Period.
