What type of discipline was issued to the Trooper? In what world can the Governor interfere with an on-going investigation? Can the Governor be cited for intering with this investigation in any way? Wouldn't that be cool?

How can the Governor (Gump) interfere with a trooper period. Sounds like obstruction to me at the very least. Gump needs a reality check, and maybe a last place finish in the next election will bring him back to it. Unfortunately, in the meantime we're stuck with this "tax and spend" idiot!!!!
