State Senator Arrested In Mob Threat Plot

This is what we've come to in government, politicians acting as gangsters. Oh, I wasn't referring to George Bush and his neocon/Soprano friends:
Senate Minority Leader Louis DeLuca was arrested Friday on charges that he asked a businessman at the center of a federal racketeering probe to threaten someone the senator believed had abused a relative.

State and federal authorities said DeLuca in 2005 sought help from James Galante, a Danbury trash hauler who first caught DeLuca's eye by making a large charitable contribution. Galante is currently awaiting trial on 72 counts of tax fraud, racketeering, threatening and extortion.
