The news out of Mingo County keeps getting worse.
Now, the county prosecutor claims he knew about ongoing judicial corruption, but was unable to do anything to stop it.
Government is supposed to provide a service to the people. Elected officials
who fail at this vital mission, or, worse yet, abuse their positions of power,
undermine everything that makes our system work.
I hope those who put their own selfish agenda over serving the public have been
put on notice.
The bad old days are over and those who break the law will pay the price.
