As far as I can tell after reading the entire indictment, I can't find anything that Lanny Wilson actually did wrong. He provided full disclosure and basically only funded the developments and helped everyone around him without gaining anything for himself politically or financially from Ruffin Poole's actions. Ruffin's mistake was not disclosing his profits and gifts and calling the permit office. Lanny did the right thing to step down from DOT even though these actions have nothing to do with DOT issues at all.
