MS-SEN: MS defendent pleads guilty to conspiracy to corruptly influence Ronnie Musgrove

Change Musgrove can believe in. It’s in his pocket

So someone pleads guilty to tring to bribe Mississippi
Democratic Senate candidate and former Governor Ronnie Musgrove.

The Clarion-Ledger
has the details:

Georgia businessman pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy
to corruptly influence a public official
in connection
with Mississippi’s costly and failed beef plant venture — a
decision that could spill over into a U.S. Senate race.

Who? Ronnie Musgrove, with $45k to his campaign account:

Robert Moultrie, chairman and chief executive of The
Facility Group of Smyrna, Ga., admitted he gave $45,000 in
contributions to the re-election campaign of then-Gov. Ronnie
, who is now running for the Senate.


Moultrie has agreed to cooperate with authorities. He first gave
Musgrove $20,000 through a PAC Moultrie formed in July 2003. In
September 2003, “Musgrove contacted Moultrie for another campaign
contribution of $25,000,” according to court documents.

Currently, no one is alleging that Musgrove did anything wrong.
