25. And what about the request not to name Zimmerman's donors?

As another CNN guest, a defense lawyer, on Anderson Cooper 360 stated:

I will tell you, in the right hands, this fund-raising appeal, it would not surprise me if he (Zimmerman) would raise at least $2 to $5 million. There is a contingent or a constituency out there that would think nothing of writing checks anywheres from $25,000 to $50,000 for the defense. And part of the reason for that is that there is a constituency that wants to use George Zimmerman and this whole issue by proxy and there's no better way to do it than to have something like this which is a hot button issue, which leads the nightly news for weeks at a time and when you go to trial...

Zimmerman's attorney previously said that Zimmerman was so destitute that he was representing him pro bono. The attorney has now completely reversed his tune and is saying his fees could total $1 million. This indicates that Zimmerman's attorney also has a problem with telling a consistent story.

I think the public has the right to know who's bankrolling Zimmerman, and who's writing those big checks.
