    No different from any other state he just was close to getting caught…Politics as usual. With no moral compass society drifts…

    At least he has been brought down by the workings of our society, political system and free press.

    Aside from being crooked in playing off his office and power for all it was worth, Rowland was arrogant to believe that it either didn’t matter or he wouldn’t be caught. Kevin’s right, the system of oversight finally exposed him. He could have saved the state a lot of turmoil by admitting to poor judgement earlier — it’s too bad it finally took a Supreme Court order to testify to get him to resign. Could be that there is a lot more there yet undiscovered.

    I agree with Marty’s thoughtful comment that there’s more to come here; Rowland is likely to be indicted by a Federal grand jury. But the insurance industry need not feel tarred by his brush. He only worked in insurance for 4 years, between the ages of 23 and 27, much of that part time.
