Public Corruption in El Paso?

elpasotimes.com reports on an ongoing public corruption case in El Paso. As with so many public corruption cases, the investigations can take several years.  Once an individual starts cooperating there is usually more ability for the government to prosecute others. Co-blogger Peter Henning notes in this article that "[e]lected officials either plead early or fight for a long time."  This is in large part because of the collateral consequences of a guilty finding.  As co-blogger Peter Henning notes, "[t]hey have to fight to the end because, either way, it is the end of their career."
