The Treasurer and The Cocaine

Oh dear me. Thomas Ravenel does seem to have dropped himself in the deep doo doo.

The FBI have charged him with the distribution of less than 500 grammes of cocaine. That's really not the sort of thing that the State Treasurer of South Carlina is supposed to do.

One important point is the "less than" 500 grammes. If it were over it would be a mandatory 5 year sentence if found guilty. Wonder is the amount got massaged at all? Thomas Ravenel is, after all, one of the scions of a major political family in the State.
