Here's what's circling town on the McClung indictment:
The prosecution is an age-old vendetta carried out against an outspoken member of the law enforcement community. McClung may not have dotted his I's and crossed his T's on the money transactions but the word around town is that the allegations are trumped up.
A couple of clues in yellow:
1. Any time a federal prosecutor has to remind you that an offense is "serious" you should be skeptical.
2. The feds were looking for a way to make a case against McClung because he never used federal money in any of the alleged transactions.
So, who knows. Maybe it's all trumped up nonsense. Let's wait and see.
