The noose is tightening around Vincent Fumo, the retiring Pennsylvania Democratic senator who is facing trial on multiple fraud indictments. Two of his aides pleaded guilty last week.
Prosecutors now claim that Fumo and his associates defrauded the state Senate of $2 million and a museum and a nonprofit of $1.5 million -- a bigger total than the $2 million claimed in the original indictment, which is a big deal if Fumo is found guilty and forced to pay restitution.
In a separate probe, Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett, who has been busy indicting legislative Democrats of late, is said to be nosing around in GOP caucus matters.
