Former state school Superintendent of Georgia, Linda Schrenko, is now in the second week of her trial. So far there have been witnesses testifying for the prosecution saying that Shrenko was "illegally funneling money into then-Georgia School Superintendent Linda Schrenko’s 2002 campaign for governor." (See Atlanta Jrl Constitution here) The Atlanta Jrl Consitution has a blog covering the trial here.
UPDATE: Schrenko entered into a plea bargain with the government today, over a week into her trial, in which she will receive an eight-year prison term. According to an AP report (here), she will plead guilty to one count of money laundering and one count of fraud. (ph)
