Massachusetts State Senator Indicted

A Press Release of the United States Attorney's Office in Massachusetts reports on the indictment of an "[e]ight-term Massachusetts State Senator" "on public corruption charges stemming from her [alleged]acceptance of more than $20,000 in cash payments to introduce legislation in the State Senate." She is charged "with attempted extortion under color of official right and theft of honest services as a State Senator."  But it also sounds like there is another side to this story.  Check out - Michael Levenson and Jonathan Saltzman, Boston Globe, Bribery defendant Wilkerson - Senator allegedly took cash for help on liquor license, development
