No Good Deed Going Unpunished

Convicted of credit card fraud, served four months in prison, threatened with new charges unless he cooperates with the FBI, now he's the front man in the Tennessee Waltz investigation and the man at the center of the web of corrupt political connections spun in Shelby County. Tim Willis is a most hated man right now in certain circles of Democratic Memphis and Shelby County.

Adding insult to injury, now comes word that he may be facing further charges for violating State lobbying regulations.
Rawlins says Love and Willis may have broken state laws in several ways. The director plans to present information on possible violations to the Registry of Election Finance board at its next meeting June eighth and let the board decide whether to pursue charges.
Given that he was put up to this by the FBI and Federal prosecutors, you'd think they'd go to bat for him, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
