the top news story was that of Democrat Senator Virgil Smith.
On May 10th of this year Virgil Smith got into a heated argument with his ex-wife and shot at her.
Virgil was arrested and is on trial for attempted murder, yet he still sits as a Senator in Lansing collecting a taxpayer paycheck.
The shooting case does not look good for Virgil Smith as it appears undeniable that he shot at his ex-wife. The case seems so open and shut, that according to news reports, Virgil Smith may claim insanity.
So we have either a Senator that tried to kill his wife as a sane person or as an insane person. If he is insane does his votes hold legal merit?
What is even stranger is that his state office website has also been down since the shooting took place in early May but he is somehow still voting on key issues such as the road tax.
The funny thing is Virgil Smith has been voting straight along with the Republicans, who hold the majority in the Senate. Why hasn't Republican Senate Majority Leader Arlene Meekhof moved to expel Democrat Virgil Smith? Has some sort of back scratching deals been put into place? The votes seem to make it look so.
Rumor was Virgil Smith would get special treatment and perhaps he is.
