Senator Ward Crutchfield & Others Arrested in “Tennessee Waltz”

Four members of the Tennessee Legislature were arrested this morning in Nashville on conspiracy and extortion charges… including Hamilton County Senator Ward Crutchield (D), Rep. Chris Newton (R) from Polk County, and Charles Love, Hamilton County School Board member.

Um, this is kinda huge in this neck of the woods. Two reps from the Chattanooga area and a HC School board member, busted on conspiracy. Ward has been a rep for a long long time, from back when politics was understood to be corrupt. Now they nabbed some reps and chances are, they’re guilty as hell.

My friends at The Pulse Blog have more…including video.
