Tuesday, Senate Republican leader Phil Berger spoke to WWAY about two ongoing SBI investigations into Senator RC Soles. Wednesday, the top Democrat senator responded. Senator Soles is under investigation by the SBI for accusations of sexual misconduct, and for shooting a former client at his home in late August. Senator Marc Basnight is the Senate President Pro-Tem. We asked him what impact the SBI investigations could have on Senator Soles' role as Chairman of the Commerce Committee and Chair of the Democratic Caucus. Senator Basnight responded in a statement. "Senator Soles has been an outstanding senator on behalf of the people of this state and as effective and dedicated as I've ever seen for the people he represents in his district. It would be unfair to him and to the people he represents to rush to judgment."
