Two county attorneys tapped to look into bribery allegations against state Rep. Mark Walker will continue to investigate a possible criminal violation, the state Attorney General's Office said Thursday.
Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's office issued the statement to clarify its seemingly contradictory letters on the matter released a day earlier. The letters came from different officials in the A.G.'s Office, one seeming to indicate the investigation was being dropped and the other that it was going forward.
