Dan is in prison after his bond was revoked. For those who don't know, he is accused of nasty greed during the tobacco lawsuits here. His brother has been charged with attempting to extort $280K from fellow Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Tony Sanchez.
IMHO, this is good. If he had been elected Texas would be on its way to Californication. I don't think he will be back in the political game any time soon.
When he is convicted they should put him in a cell with his buddy Ben Reyes.
Some times bad things do happen to bad people.
