Ex-U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi of Arizona sentenced to three years for corruption

(CNN) - A former Arizona congressman was sentenced to three years in prison Monday after his June conviction on federal corruption charges.

Former U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi, 54, was indicted in 2008 on charges of extortion, bribery, insurance fraud, money laundering and racketeering related to a 2005 money-laundering scheme that netted the Flagstaff Republican more than $700,000.

    In prison, he will get free health care, which seems what republicans want.

    If you think Renzi was corrupt, check out our Atty General Tom Horne. The guy was being followed by the FBI while he had a noon time rendezvous with his mistress. He got busted when he hit another car and didn't leave a note on the person's car. The FBI had to report the incident to local authorities. AZ Republicans are incompetent and corrupt from Gov Jan Brewer on down.
