Delivering the smackdown

Oops! Some legislators are spending the morning at the big house.

2 Memphis legislators (including my former boss, John Ford) and 2 from near Chattanooga were arrested for violations of the Hobbs Act. No that's not anything Bill Hobbs (who has a great post on all the goings-on, BTW) has anything to do with :)

Extortion people. Are we surprised AT ALL?!

Not me said the flea.

Update (1:29pm): The blogosphere's resident redneck, Nate, always has very colorful commentary. I agree. Anyday that starts with John Ford being arrested is a good day. It is unfortunate that it's likely he won't actually serve any prison time if convicted.
