I have a problem with the phrase 'six-count indictment'. What does this mean? The whole paragraph goes below:
thanks in advanceA federal grand jury has handed up a six-count indictment based on the contention that the money was covered under campaign finance laws, and should have been officially disclosed.
Even before the indictment, he was loathed. While his wife was battling cancer, he was having an affair with another woman and had a baby with her. He's probably one of the most disrespected people in American politics. And that's saying a lot.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
