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."

Someone remind me who is paying for his services? Is there a "Friends of Charles Manson Defense Fund" I haven't heard about?

As far as I'm concerned HITLER didn't kill anyone by his own hands and was the same fella who said that a man with a great mind is far dangerous than a 1000 army soldiers. As to the religious thing if thay want to be purified CRUCIFY both the lawer and the guilty!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

'Oh, ok Chuck! I'll get right on it! No sweat! I've got border problems in the southwest, a revolt in Wisconsin, a Republican House giving me attitude, growing revolutions in the middle east, & declining approval ratings, but I'll take care of your problem. You should be out by the end of the week buddy!'

Ok serious question... what the hell is Manson doing with his mouth in this picture? Is he sticking out the teenie tiny tip of his tongue or is he sucking in all but the center of his lower lip??

If he doesn't deserve the title of Satan what does he deserve. If not for bleeding heart liberals he would be dead already.
