Rep. Renzi down, Fossella soon to follow?

Remember that 6 member list of ethically challenged Republicans Fossella was on? Well Rep. Renzi (R-AZ), one of his fellow list-mates, has been indicted on 35 counts of extortion, conspiracy, money laundering and related charges. via the DCCC;

We will aggressively work in districts targeting ethically challenged incumbents like Tim Murphy (PA-18), Gary Miller (CA-42), Rick Renzi (AZ-01), John Doolittle (CA-04), Jerry Lewis (CA-41) and Vito Fossella (NY-13).

Rep. Renzi had previously resigned from his Congressional committee assignments after the FBI raided a family business. Rep. Renzi has announced he is not seeking re-election but will also not resign before the end of this term despite his indictment. Rep. Doolittle is in a similar situation. He was forced to resign all his committee seats after his house was raided by the FBI. Doolittle will also not seek re-election.

So guesses as to what the dirt on Fossella is?
