Maybe this will take as long as it took to send out the 2009 real estate tax bills.

I agree - I think it's bull@$#*

Even IF there really is an outside investigation - which HOPEFULLY will result in the Federal agents finally indicting all the senatorial crooks - Russell has YET to issue whatever measures they will institute in the legislature to ensure that these abuses do not happen again. That should have happened a loooooong time ago, by now.

He's a freaking joke.
