Renzi Indictment Frenzy

Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ) has just been indicted on 35 counts, including money laundering, wire fraud, and extortion stemming from a land deal wherein Renzi used his official capacity to get people to buy land from a partner, who then filtered some of the money back to Renzi -- there are also separate charges related to Renzi possibly embezzling money from a side business to fund his congressional campaigns. TPM Muckraker has the considerable muck.
