As House Speaker Jim Black's scandals have mounted, he could always say one thing to divert attention: "I am not the subject of any investigation, just some staffers, friends, donors..." Well Mr. Black, no longer can you say that. Many news organizations are reporting that Black will be the subject of a formal investigation by the State Board of elections. From WFMY:
The State Board of Elections will formally probe the fundraising activities of House Speaker Jim Black, whose office is already at the center of a separate, federal grand jury inquiry.
The probe scheduled to begin February 8, 2006 will look at donations from the video poker industry and optometrists. The elections board director says it will take three days.
I feel the walls closing in Mr. Black.
