Former GOP Chair Gets 6 Years

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Samuel T. Currin - a former U.S. attorney, state judge and state Republican chairman - was sentenced to almost six years in federal prison on charges related to a tax fraud conspiracy, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Currin, 58, of Raleigh, pleaded guilty in November to conspiring to launder $1.45 million through his law firm's client trust account, in addition to lying on his taxes by failing to report an offshore debit card account, prosecutors said.

Three others also have been charged in the scheme.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
