Last November, when police arrested Jack and Leslie Johnson at their residence, it made a bit of a stir, mostly because Mrs. Johnson was attempting to smuggled $79,000 in her brassiere, leading to a lot of questions about Mrs. Johnson’s undergarments and about Mr. Johnson’s business dealings.

Today, eight counts of federal bribery, extortion, witness tampering and other related corruption charges were filed with the Federal Court in Baltimore, based upon an affidavit sworn by Wendy Munoz of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which alleges at least $120,000 in kickbacks were provided for Johnson’s help in an official capacity in securing federal funds for development.

Something tells me this is just the tip of the iceberg for Prince George’s County.
