Pity poor, poor Harold Ford, Jr. Only yesterday, he officially filed as a candidate for retiring US Senator Bill Frist's seat. (More here. This link may change, so watch out.) Then this morning all hell breaks loose. (See, well... the next post.) Ford and Memphis/Shelby County Democrats will be front and center in a huge scandal for many, many, many months to come.
As they say, timing in politics is everything. Watch for Ford to quietly withdraw his nomination within a week.
