'ledger domain' for 'legerdemain'

Especially eggcornish when used in reference to shady accounting, i.e., magic tricks with the ledgers. Examples:

Kopper will have to pay back $12 million in money generated by accounting ledger domain.

... the most egregious example of the use of ledger domain by corporate management teams in hiding the truth about a company’s actual financial health.

It’s a twelve-month period that depends on the company’s/government’s accounting system. Like magic, it involves a bit of ledger domain…

...were attracted to that industry by a particular obsession with money, and wealth creation by ledger domain tricks.

But I have yet to read the whole truth: that this ledger-domain began with the
senior Bush’s crusade to eliminate Roosevelt’s pesky rules… … Reamin.htm

...what was then the HEW Secretary refused to approve the notion of NIH funding this research and for various logistical ledger domain…

And we may find some good congressional ledger domain too to make sure that we
do get this done…

By your argument this legal ledgerdomain would transform unproductive retainers
into productive workers.

However, one has to practice all sorts of cerebral ledger domain to look at the
situation in Iraq as one that is threatening to citizens in the US.
