Business as usual in Massachusetts - whether at the federal or state level. If you fess up to the crime, you won't do the time, and you can keep every dime you made off the taxpayers.

This stinks.
And note the AP hack who wrote this article failed to name the lenient judge who let these two guys off the hook.

... is the 13 billion dollar question. When Martha Coakley came into her office with the Big Dig in the waning months of its completion she instantly had enough work for three Attorneys General: one for the normal workload of MassAG and two more for the quagmire of the Big Dig. Had she shown more diligence pursuing that corruption, she would have come closer to getting my vote for U.S. Senate.
As it happened, you don't get a promotion for good attendance.
