Cosh Says He's Telling the Truth, But 'I Don't Have to Be Happy About It'

Under prosecution questioning about his immunity agreement, Cosh said he had to answer prosecutors' questions truthfully, but added, "I don't have to like it and I don't have to be happy about it."

More tidbits from Cosh's testimony:

*Cosh said he was on 30 percent leave of absence from the ARC beginning mid-August 2000. He said, however, that he only returned to the ARC office for occasional Monday morning meetings over the course of the leave.

Cosh said he had "no control" over the percentage of leave time. "In fact, until you showed me the documents four years ago," he said to Korte, "I don't even know if I had the percentage right.

*At one point in the 2000 campaign, Cosh said ARC spokeswoman Heather Smith called and "bitched me out" for not keeping the home office apprised of the goings-on in the field, and he was instructed to call in or e-mail updates daily.

*Cosh said ARC staffers were asked what their interests were, and assigned to campaigns with those in mind. Being from northern Wisconsin, Cosh said he preferred to be assigned there.
