Pilot or Pirate
Tennessee's Republican governor Bill Haslam springs from the family that runs the Pilot Travel Centers. The Federal government has investigated this company for impropriety and evidently extracted settlements. I now wonder if the prosecution of Pilot was at least partially politically-motivated as we saw in the case of Gibson Guitars or if members of the Governor's family might actually be culpable in a civil or even criminal matter.
