We've sort of followed the Richie Farmer saga off and on. If you haven't, in a nutshell, he went into politics, was elected Secretary of Agriculture, then ran for Lt. Governor. Farmer was hit with a record 42 ethics charges previously. Now he's been hit with federal charges. The state investigation said that the Agriculture Department had developed a "toxic culture of entitlement" under Farmer's administration.
