Formal Investigation of Jim Black Begins

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.

Personally

I hope he is innocent - the last thing we need is a Democratic scandal to allelviate the pressure on Republicans.

It isn't us, its the laws, they are soooooooo confusing that no one keep track of them all. That is all it is, technicalities, that is why we are for simplified lobbying laws.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Or..

If he is guilty, the Democrats can show the difference between the parties by actually punishing those that prove corrupt rather than keeping them around and even praising them as the national Republican party has.
