Michael Moore Pledges $20,000 Towards Julian Assange's Bail - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Julian Assange, the controversial founder of WikiLeaks, could have Michael Moore to thank if he makes bail - at least in part.

After his first request was denied last week, Assange was granted bail in a London court Tuesday, though he will remain in custody pending an appeal of the ruling by Swedish prosecutors.

The court set bail at 240,000 British pounds, or $378,840, but included strict monitoring conditions to go along with it, including wearing an electronic monitoring device, staying at a registered address, checking in with London police daily and observing curfews.
