Bye Vince

One of the leaders of the Philadelphia machine is about to have a wee bit of trouble:

The four-year investigation of State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo is coming to an end, and lawyers familiar with the case expect him to be indicted soon, possibly as early as Tuesday.

Fumo, one of the most powerful politicians in Pennsylvania, last year received a target letter - a formal notice that he is likely to face charges related to the fraud and obstruction-of-justice probe.

Fumo recently told people close to him to brace for an indictment, and has assured them that he will vigorously fight the charges.
