Bama GOPer gets flushed down the sewer

This morning former Jefferson County, Al Commissioner Mary Buckelew(R) plead guilty to obstruction of justice charges against her in the case involving the Birmingham, Al sewer system that has Birmingham on the verge of filing the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the country. She becomes the second GOPer and fourth person(2 Dems) overall on the five member county commission to plead out in this case. Current County Commission President Bettye Fine Collins(R) is the only member of the old 1998-2002 county commission who hasn't at this point been indicted in the sewer scandal. Most observers in the Birmingham political scene also believe its only a matter of time before Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford(D) gets indicted from his actions in this sewer mess.
