What about the politicians?

You may recall that two former executives of Westar were indicted on charges relating to their looting the company. At the time, I wondered why there was no mention of any action regarding the $25 grand payoff to various Republican lawmakers in return for Westar getting "a seat at the table" and some favorable legislation passed.

Turns out Public Citizen is asking the same question. I'm sure they, like me, don't actually expect an answer from John Ashcroft's Justice Department, but we all know that certain ritualistic obligations must still be met. They've also got a pretty good clearinghouse of information on this story, in case you need a refresher.
