Corruption Case in Alabama
The Northeast Alabama Community College office of state Rep. Todd Greeson was raided by federal agents last week, according to the blog Doc's Political Insider. ...
It was the latest news out of a two-year investigation into corruption and bribery involving Alabama community colleges and public officials. Eleven Democratic and two Republican legislators, including Greeson, work for community colleges.
The observation accompanying every version of the story heard here is that the investigation had to touch a Republican to appear bi-partisan.
Last month, state Rep. Sue Schmitz was arrested on charges of accepting $175,000 in college funds for work she never performed.
Also in January, Roy Johnson, a former legislator and former chancellor of the state's two-year college system, pleaded guilty to corruption charges and is cooperating with federal investigators.
