That's federal, not state, and not Rhode Island. No seriously, Rhode Island's most famous politician, Buddy Cianci, was a man who literally had the cops hold another man down while he personally beat the shit out of that man (the man slept with Mrs Cianci), went to prison, got out, and STILL got re-elected.
Then eventually got taken down by the FBI for extortion, witness tampering, etc.
And got out of prison a couple of years later and nearly won another election for mayor.
