***BREAKING*** - Ethics Commission going after Republican Rep. Kevin McGee (R-Brandon)

I can now confirm that the Mississippi Ethics Commission has investigated Republican Rep. Kevin McGee (R-Brandon) for potential violations of state ethics laws. Clay Chandler over at the Mississippi Business Journal broke the story just now, although the link to the full story isn't working properly at the moment for some reason.

At issue are reportedly 351 contracts Rep. McGee had with the State for printing work. McGee is President of Service Printers, Inc. Rep. McGee is reportedly represented by two Republican House Speaker hopefuls, Rep. Mark Baker (R-Brandon) and Rep. Jeff Smith (R-Columbus).

There had been a hearing set for tomorrow morning at 10 a.m., but that hearing has been postponed.
