Waltzer walks

Former State Representative Chris Newton was released from the half-way house today after serving his 1 year term for his part in the Tennessee Waltz scandal. Unlike many legislators who are still denying, delaying and fighting the charges against them Chris resigned (yes, it took a bit of encouragement--but he did), took his lumps and can now begin to move on. He's only 36. Plenty of time to recover from this mistake. I wish him well.

If you've forgotten what that day was like, here's Bill Hobbs' play by play of that morning: NEWSFLASH! Passel of legislators arrested! And while it was Bill that gave us the blow by blow, it was Rep. Stacey Campfield that broke the news.
