    How about ditching the mugshot. It cheapens the reporting and conveys guilt before the investigation is completed. John’s mistake was trying to retain his positions in the party and hanging around in the Idaho Senate too long. His actions last Father’s Day were not helpful. I hope he can patch this up with his family and get on with life.

    I will wait for the investigation to be completed before rendering judgement and think you should replace the above photo with one that reflects “innocent until proven guilty”.
