And the crime family known as the RNC continues on:
There are reports that former U.S. Senator Trent Lott is under investigation in connection with an on-going judicial bribery probe. Today's Wall Street Journal is reporting that federal agents are investigating whether Trent Lott knowingly played a role in an alleged conspiracy to influence a Mississippi judge.
The national newspaper attributes their report to "people familiar with the situation." WLBT News was unable to contact an FBI spokesperson in Jackson for comment Thursday morning. Indicted lawyer Timothy Balducci testified Wednesday in Federal Court in Oxford, that Lott's brother-in- law Dickie Scruggs had tried to use Lott to influence rulings made by Hinds County Circuit Judge Bobby DeLaughter. He said in turn, Lott would recommend Judge DeLaughter for a seat on the federal bench. This involved a dispute over millions of dollars in asbestos legal fees. Lott is not charged with any wrong doing in the case. He unexpectedly resigned his Senate post just two days before Scruggs
No wonder why he resigned from the Senate rather quickly.
