Gov. Contractor Sentenced for Bribery Scheme
This just in from the Department of Justice:
"A government contractor and former employee of the U.S. Department of the Treasury was sentenced in Washington today in connection with a bribery scheme involving contracts at the U.S. Tax Court in the District of Columbia, Acting Assistant Attorney General Rita M. Glavin of the Criminal Division announced."
It seems that a Maryland contractor who was also a planner for the Treasury Department gave a government employee $55,000 in bribes for two contract awards, one of them at the U.S. Tax Court worth $188,000.
The perp got 30 months.
