The web page of the Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reports the recent interim suspension of a former state senator as a result of a criminal conviction. Details about the conviction and related criminal cases may be found in this post from Philly.com:
In March, after a 22-week trial, a federal jury found [former senator] Fumo guilty of 137 counts of conspiracy, fraud, tax offenses, and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors presented weeks of testimony that Fumo misused millions of public dollars for his own benefit while one of the most powerful senators in Pennsylvania.
According to the post, he is now serving a sentence in federal prison. (Mike Frisch)
