Giving new meaning to "Colon Blow"

Embattled alderwoman Arenda Troutman has not had a very cleansing year so far. She was arrested in early January for allegedly accepting bribes, her possible love affair with Black Disciple Donnell "Scandalous" Jehan came into the news, and her family might have ties to the ubiquitous Hired Truck scandal. Now, things are getting even more clogged up for Troutman, as the FBI is investigating her digestion aids. Troutman alleges the FBI knows a white powder siezed from her home is not drugs, but rather a dietary supplement, and they are trying to ruin her otherwise pristine name. The FBI says they aren't done testing.

All this reminds me of the hilarious classic episode of AbFab, where Patsy gets arrested in the airport with a white powder. After testing reveals it is a harmless substance, Patsy demands they test it again because she cannot accept she has been snorting baking soda all weekend. Oh those Brits.
