I hope all the elected officials out there who might consider using their office for personal gain are taking note.
Disgraced Mingo County Judge Michael Thornsbury is going to spend the next few years in the federal pen, and just to prove there is no honor among thieves, he would have been there longer had he not rolled on his cronies.
What Thornsbury did is absolutely disgraceful and undermines the very foundation of trust that our government needs to be effective. It seems to me he is paying a small price for the damage he has done.
Hopefully, this state's sad history of political corruption is at and end and those who would trample democracy for their own benefit know that justice awaits.
