In a striking move, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested the following four Tennesse State Legislators. Its seems instead of making the law, they've been breaking the law. Or more specifically, acting in violation of the Hobbs Act, which involves extortion, and taking bribes to help out businesses in the state. Seems like we have our own home-grown Chracs from Iraq, that is a politician who is applauded by numbwits for their principles while taking bribes on the side. At least our Chiracs don't cover up mass graves, they only loot the state.
The following have been arrested:
Ward Crutchfield D-Chattanooga
Sen. John Ford D-Memphis
Sen. Kathryn Bowers D-Memphis
Rep. Chris Newton R-Cleveland
The Sen. Ford is not the anointed champion of the Democratic Party, Sen. Harold Ford, Jr., instead he's his uncle. Which while it will hurt Senator Junior, I don't think it will come close to finishing his career. Frankly, I don't think it ought to. After all, many people have whacked out relatives, even though most of them don't threaten workers in restauraunts, and then the police refuse to deal with it, as it would only be a misdemeanor.
However, the Senator in Question, aka the Sicko, has threatened to kill anyone who squeals. So, I'd like to see the District Attorney take a large law book, and piledrive it into the Senator's face. Its extremely dangerous to allow conspiracy, and enforcement of conspiracy with death threats. Add in the fact that SiQ seems to be a bit of a loon, and you have more problems. Then add in that he is a powerful man, with very strong connections via way of his family, all the way to the top of the world, and you have extremely serious problems.
If this case proves out, and with a two year investigation, plus strange behavior, plus a sting, I think it ought to, then we need to make an example of the Senator in Question.
