Politics is like a petri dish for conspiracy theories. So it is no surprise that there are at least two floating around after news that the attorney general’s office is seeking to indict Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki on charges related to his oversight (as state treasurer) of a college savings fund. The first theory, advanced by Krolicki himself, is that he is a Republican being targeted by a partisan witch hunt that traces to Democrat Numero Uno Harry Reid, whom Krolicki said last week he was interested in challenging. The other theory: Krolicki announced he was going to take on Reid because he knew the indictment-seeking missile was incoming, and he wanted to create evidence to bolster his conspiracy theory. A conspiracy theory about a conspiracy theory!
