Piece of ex-Alaska Rep. Weyhrauch's case goes to Supreme Court

A case with roots in the Alaska political corruption investigation has worked its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which this week will take a look at it and another case in which an anti-corruption statute is now in question. The Supreme Court on Tuesday will be looking at a narrow piece of former Alaska Rep. Bruce Weyhrauch's pending criminal case: whether prosecutors need to prove that Weyhrauch violated a state disclosure law to gain a conviction on federal mail-fraud statutes. Weyhrauch's case has not yet gone to trial.
