    PROVIDENCE – A dark cloud of uncertainty hung over Gordon D. Fox’s four-year reign as Speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives Friday evening, after state and federal investigators swooped into his State House office and home with search warrants, and then left hours later with armloads of boxes.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    And another one bites the dust......

    Gordon Fox: ‘I am resigning as speaker’

    For the good of the party of course.

    In a statement released by veteran public-relations consultant Bill Fischer, Fox said he would resign as speaker – often called the most powerful job in Rhode Island politics – but serve out the rest of his term as the state representative from House District 4 on Providence’s East Side. “That said, I do not intend to seek another term in the House,” he said.
