Corker To Be Held Accountable

I love it. Bob Corker is going to be held accountable just like any other person and is going to have to appear in Court on October 20th to testify in the suit being brought against him in regards to the Wal Mart land deal.

TMP Muckraker reports:

A judge today required Republican Senate candidate Bob Corker to testify and provide documents in response to a subpoena from a group of environmental activists with Democratic ties, who have filed suit over the former Chattanooga mayor’s involvement in a questionable land development deal. Typically, such documents and testimony are public.

The judge ordered the information shared on Oct. 20 — just three weeks before Tennessee voters are to decide whether he or Democrat Harold Ford Jr. will represent them in Congress. The two candidates are in a statistical dead heat, according to a new Wall Street Journal/Zogby poll.

The best part? Read this:

Corker’s lawyers had argued that he should be excused from testifying because he was running for office.

Bless their hearts. Maybe Corker will learn if he abides by the law, he won't have to appear in court.

Justice served.
