Nuts! Nutting screws state, but may become Speaker of House?

Robert Nutting, owner of now bankrupt True's Pharmacy, was recently elected by fellow legislators as speaker... unanimously! Give me a frickin' break!  
Despite the recent revelations that Nutting left the state and federal Medicaid programs with the $1.2 million in bad debt, Republicans and even some Democrats have said it will not harm his chance to become speaker.
True's Pharmacy was marking up rubber gloves and adult diapers by as much as 153%. The allowable markup was apparently 40%. Here's a link to a story which states, "Medicaid overpaid Trues by $531,792.73."
