Federal appeals court judges reviewing the conviction of former lobbyist Kevin Ring in the Abramoff scandal questioned Thursday whether evidence of campaign contributions should have been allowed at his trial.  During oral arguments, Ring's lawyer Tim O'Toole said that campaign contributions made to influence a public official are legal and that it wasn't permissible for the government to use such contributions at Ring's trial.
