Posted here was a discussion of Tennessee State Senator John Ford, who resigned his position following his indictment. The case is an outgrowth of an undercover operation called the Tennessee Waltz that originates from the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Tennessee. (see here). Ford, a Democrat, is now beginning trial on bribery, extortion, and witness tampering charges. (see here).
