So 2 years ago, the TBI, FBI, and US Attorney's Office started a fake electronics recycling company called E-Cycle. They used undercover agents posing as company reps to approach several Tennessee lawmakers. They got laws proposed and sponsored by Lawmaking big wigs, in an obvious quid pro quo.
The fun starts really with Ford... who apparently has made serious threats against federal witnesses. Of course... to tennesseans this is not a suprise.
There is still wide spectulation about the identity of the 7th suspect. Also, we should note that this is unrealted to the on-going TennCare corruption investigation... and of course... the Fords are involved in that one too.
The FBI has left the capital... apparently the person they were looking for wasn't there. They actually searched the chambers.
*** UPDATE ***
The word is now that several more arrests are expected... search warrants are being served all over the state, in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville, and of course Memphis. A total of 11 or 12 arrests are expected. Several local sources are reporting this.
