    The real story and hopefully federal case centers around Senator Puckett's sudden resignation, not this  "break in" which was more of a ham fisted attempt to start the clock ticking the Governors time to respond to their budget.

    The Richmond Times Dispatch recently released documents showing that there is more to Senator Puckett’s resignation which flipped control of the Senate over to the Republican’s than was previously known.

      Was the deal for Pucket bribery and a punishable crime or not?  Is this so unusual that the jury, or prosecutor, still out on this case.  They just elected a dem attorney general.  What is he saying?
