Indicted Alabama state Sen. Larry Means picked up an endorsement for re-election today from the National Rifle Association.
The endorsement comes just two days after federal prosecutors announced that Means and 10 others had been indicted on various charges stemming from an investigation into vote buying in the Alabama State House. Specifically, Means is charged with taking a $100,000 bribe in exchange for a yes vote on gambling legislation.
