Correction: JJ got one fact wrong. The Robert Shuler Smith campaign paid Henderson $1,100 in May and June of 2015 for "consulting". However, Henderson was not the campaign manager. If JJ gets it wrong, it admits it and puts it at the top of the page. The post has been changed to reflect the correct information.
Updates: posted at end of story.

Kingfish note: Hmm..... now who just pleaded guilty to bribery, worked for the District Attorney, and admitted to working with an unnamed co-conspirator?
Update (8/1/2016): Attorney General Jim Hood issued the following press release:
Update (8/3/2016): The bond order is posted below. The Hinds County Public Defender's office recused itself from representing Henderson since some of the criminal defendants accused of paying bribes were represented by the same office.
