Sun headline: GOP leader out as negotiator over ethics threats; Update: Another conflict?

And the plot thickens. I won’t keep you in suspense, the GOP leader is…

Sen. Hardy. And just to be clear, Sen. Hardy is withdrawing as a negotiator and will abstain from voting on the bills because of a potential ethics complaint if he did vote.

I’m sure there will be more surprises to come. As I’ve said before, the drama would be much more enjoyable to watch if it doesn’t end with a secret, job killing, record billion dollar tax increase.

Update: Does Sen. Raggio have a conflict as well?
