Your article, "A Federal Case?" (2/22/02) reported doubts that there will 
be a federal investigation into the Capitol's caucus scandal, because, 
according to sources, federal authorities are too preoccupied with other 

Interesting then, that the feds weren't too busy to leave a drug 
investigation to state authorities, such as the one of Jocko's bartenders. 
They were all minor players and definitely not kingpins who were singled 
out and prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and who now serving 
lengthy sentences in federal prisons at taxpayer expense.

I feel so much safer knowing these poor souls are rotting in prison while 
corrupt legislators thumb their noses at Wisconsinites and piss our tax 
dollars away on legal bills, destroying any remaining respect state 
residents might have for an institution that is supposed to be representing 
the people of this state.
