The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal Editorial, 8/20/8

The current set of guilty pleas in federal court in the Northern District of Mississippi by Georgia executives with the The Facility Group is a head scratcher.

As I understand it, the executives’ guilty pleas are for giving campaign contributions to then-Gov. Ronnie Musgrove because they thought it might help them curry favor with him later.

Well, with all due respect to the prosecutors at the U.S. Department of Justice, they had better get off their hindquarters and get busy. Under that definition, they can prosecute just about every politician and campaign donor in the country.
