When State Senator Brenda Council was gambling away campaign funds what was her campaign doing?
According to her state reports, very little.
On Tuesday Council, who has apologized for her behavior, is scheduled to appear in Lancaster County District Court where she is expected to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges tied to the gambling.
In the meantime can she rebound from her close primary loss to former State Senator Ernie Chambers and beat Chambers when it counts on Election Day?
