    @DN2, Of course the investigation will continue. With questions about houseboats, golf trips million dollar lots. cement companies and Krispy creme. There are many unanswered questions about Mr Swallow.

    It is good the bar is saying they may reopen their investigation depending on what the many other complaints are about.

    When you perceive all the election campaigning promises Chief Deputy AG Swallow supposedly made such as the April 7, 2012, recorded telephone conservation between Swallow and Aaron Christner.

    Recorded conversations can be fabricated but I haven't seen the AG deny that recording is his voice.

    The Lieutenant Governor finally departed his many investigations to the wind due to needing more money. This should be a hint for the elected AG to seek other resolutions than to keep his office appearing to be muddied by his actions as Chief Deputy Attorney General. It appears as if was doing actions for the then Attorney General who appears to be out of this picture any type of investigation nor depositions and documents.

    It seems as if there would be overflow from the prior AG to the present AG even though this is not Illinois or Chicago. Having lived in Illinois for 9 years there was always some investigation of elected officials whether a federal or state investigation. President Lincoln had his own team of rivals and put them into his administration.

    Of course, the ongoing "investigations" are likely to stretch on for years. After all, they are being conducted by lawyers billing by the hour.

    If they cannot find anything they will continue to search. And search, until they finally find something, anything, to be able to claim they found some wrongdoing.

    I bet Swallow will rue the day he neglected to clean up after walking his dog a decade ago, or perhaps spitting on a sidewalk in grade school. Not to mention an expired parking meter while in college.

    Remember, Democrats, and liberals, your demands for "investigations" have set the new standard for such witch hunts in the future.
