Bredesen will review ethics legislation because of indictments

As part of the fallout from this corruption scandal, future legislative bills that make it to Governor Phil Bredesen's desk will be scrutinized.

He said he's still stunned about the corruption charges. The Governor added he will look at ethics legislation that could prevent something like this from happening again.

"I have to say though, taking cash in an envelope has been illegal under a million laws already and is probably as old as government, I'm afraid," said Bredesen.

The Governor said he's considered what went into past legislative bills he's signed. He says he will carefully scrutinize future ones to make sure nothing illegal takes place.
