This is a red-letter day in our state: The crooks got caught! They've been busted red-handed--vote-buying, mail fraud, bribery, racketeering, etc. http://topics.al.com/tag/bingo/index.html Some big-time players are going down. Word around here is, more may fall--including our spineless, gutless Attorney General, who is likely as dirty as the others. The biggest fish is the local gambling boss, Milton McGregor. He's been neck-deep in organized crime for years, and between the teacher union boss and himself, they've bribed, bought, and owned the lion's share of our mostly Democratic legislature for decades. (However, the indictments included Republican and Independents as well, so this wasn't partisan--not to mention, this was an FBI/DOJ operation, not an Alabama one). Hopefully, this will flip our bought-and-paid-for Legislature to one who works for the people. Things are looking up. And I hope these losers spend the absolute maximum time in jail.
