Say it ain’t So, Heath!

So, the whole TVA land deal scandal isn’t dead yet. From Knownews.com
While U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler has indicated that his name wasn’t included in documents connected with a water-access deal approved by the TVA, a 2005 letter to the federal agency identifies him as a partner in the venture that sought the deal.
I’ve always liked Shuler. He played ball with my uncle when they were at Swain. And, I think he’s done a fairly good job in the House, economic voting issues aside. Actually, he’s probably the best we could hope for as far as Dems go. He probably wants this to die, immediately, though. It still doesn’t appear as though any laws were broken, but it doesn’t look good.
