Wow! That's big news here in Mich.

A poweful political figure, involved in some less than ethical business dealings.
That's one way to get out of being indicted.

He was being INVESTIGATED.. But nothing had been proven, and now it's a moot point..

RIP Edward Mcnamara..

RIP and comfort to his family.

But you'll forgive me if I don't get all misty at a corrupt bureaucrat's passing.
