Bingo! State Senator Harri Anne Smith Arrested

Hat-Tip to Politics Alabama

Breaking: State Senator Arrested This Morning

It's not every day that a sitting State Senator is arrested, but that appears to have happened this morning. Senator Harri Anne Smith was apparently arrested this morning by State Police.

Wiregrass televison station WTVY is reporting that state Sen. Harri Anne Smith was arrested at her Slocomb home this morning by state police.

The station did not report what charge she faces, only that she has been carried to the federal courthouse in Montgomery.

There is some speculation that she will be charged with corruption charges in connection with an investigation into the whole bingo mess, but that has not been confirmed at this time.

This is going to be interesting. I'm also hearing rumors that Ronnie Gillie was also arrested, and that other arrests may be pending. I'll keep on eye on this one...
