I didn't know much about Derrick Shepard...but damn, the commenters on the last post seem to be unanimous in their condemnation:
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Disregarding his shenanigans as an elected official, in the few times I've actually met Shepard at our neighborhood association meetings he's struck me as a real jerk.
This potential news about Sheppard is the best thing I've heard in a LOOONG time.
I lost a file of dirt on him that was about as thick as the yellow pages in the floodwaters.
This guy was in law school at the same time I was...He stole money from the Black Association of Law Students before he graduated. This guy is through-and-through a crook.
He was embezzling in law school? Then he goes on to become a state senator? truly amazing.
Tomorrow we'll know for whom the bell tolls.
