I read the about the accusations against and conviction of former state Sen. Shirley Huntley ["Jail for politician," News, May 10]. This is corruption and greed personified. I also read the "Support for Huntley" [News, May 10], which ends with her granddaughter's enumeration of the family's hardships. Touching.

However, to all those supporters, I say that everyone, no matter how much good they may have done, must be held accountable for all convicted wrongdoing. She's getting off with a great deal of leniency. Be thankful for that.
