Feds Arrest 3 Officials in Calif. Bribery Case

Steve Neavling

The FBI is investigating the small Southern California city of Cudahy after arresting three officials Friday that feds say accepted bribes to support the opening of a marijuana dispensary, L.A. Times reports.

Documents in the case against former City Manager Angel Perales, Mayor David Silva and Councilman Osvaldo Conde suggest bribery and other malfeasance are far more pervasive, according to the Times.

“These guys are not your typical, uh, council people,” the longtime official, Angel Perales, advised the informant in a phone call on Jan. 26, according to a transcript released by the U.S. attorney, the Times reported. “They’ve dealt with, you know, people that throw money down.”

Federal investigators also appear to be determining whether the city was involved with election fraud.

Drug Killing in Honduras is Part of Aggressive DEA Strategy

Steve Neavling

The shooting death of a suspected drug trafficker in Honduras by a federal agent is part of a new, aggressive enforcement strategy that started in April, the Washington Post reports.

Since then, the DEA has seen a dramatic increase in arrests.

The mission is called Operation Anvil and is run by six U.S. Department helicopters that search out suspicious flights, according to the Post.

As part of the new operation, drug agents follow every flight of unknown origin and bypass rules of U.S. military engagement by contracting with non-U.S. pilots, the Post reported.

Issa: No Evidence of White House Cover-Up in ‘Fast and Furious’

Steve Neavling

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said Sunday there is no evidence that the White House was involved in a cover-up of the botched gun-trafficking operation known as “Fast and Furious,” Bloomberg reports.

Instead, Issa said on several Sunday talk shows that the blame lies with Justice Department for covering up documents about the operation, which allowed illegally purchased guns to be smuggled to Mexican drug cartels.

Meanwhile, the U.S. House is expected to vote this week on contempt of Congress charges against U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for withholding some documents.

“Justice lied to the American people on Feb. 4 and didn’t make it right for 10 months,” Issa sad on Fox New Sunday, according to Bloomberg.


Feds Seek Stiff Penalty in Illegal Online Gambling Case

Steve Neavling

Federal prosecutors are hoping send a message about illegal online gambling by urging a judge to sentence the brother-in-law of U.S. Rep. John Tierney, D-Massachusetts, for at least four years, the Boston Herald reported.

The mastermind of Antigua-based Sports Off Shore, Daniel Eremian, was found guilty in December of racketeering and conspiracy for operating a multimillion-dollar gambling website.

The case is the first of its kind since the passage of the Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, according to the Boston Herald.

“The online gaming world has been watching the case at bar and the court’s sentence must reflect that criminal organizations cannot hide in offshore havens and commit crimes in the United States,” prosecutors said in their sentencing memorandum filed in U.S. District Court, as reported by the Boston Herald. “If the court’s sentence does not provide sufficient punishment, other offshore gambling businesses may take it as a signal that U.S. laws have no teeth and that it is worth the risk to conduct their business in the United States.”

Hoover Had His Agents in the 1950s Asking Mobsters if the Mafia Existed

By Allan Lengel

There doesn’t seem to be any doubt these days that the Mafia exists. In fact, that goes without saying.

But in the 1950s, not everyone subscribed to that assumption.

Jerry Capeci of Gang Land News, the premiere website on the Mafia, has unearthed documents which show that J. Edgar Hoover’s agents in the late 1950s were asking mobsters if the Mafia existed.

Capeci writes:

On March 24, 1958, Mafia boss Joe Profaci, a charter member of the Mafia’s Commission that was established in 1931, told two agents who stopped at the gangster’s offic e at the Carmela Mia Packing Company in Brooklyn that he knew “nothing of the Mafia organization” but “assumed it was just a term used in referring to Italians.”

Agents got more of the same on October 15, 1958 when they stopped by to chat with Anthony (Tony Bender) Strollo, the powerful Genovese family capo who would fall out of favor with his mob superiors and disappear four years later in a still-unsolved murder.

“Strollo claimed that the Mafia was a fantasy created by newspapers,” said the report. In an August 22, 1958 interview, Michael Genovese, a brother of the “top underworld leader” Vito Genovese, (right) “ridiculed the idea that the Mafia ever existed outside the nation of Italy or that the criminals in the United States of Italian extraction are members of such an organization,” the report stated.

Well, as we’ve learned , The Godfather, the Sopranos and Goodfellas were based on something more than someone’s imagination. And Sammy “The Bull” Gravano was more than just a hoodlum wannabe.

Steve Neavling

A Texas man was indicted by a federal grand jury late last week on charges he violated the civil rights of Muslims when he threatened to blow up the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in Tennessee, according to

Javier Alan Correa, 24, is accused of leaving an expletive-laced voice mail at the mosque, threatening to blow up the building with a bomb.

Correa faces 10 years in prison on one count of intentionally obstructing by threat of force the free exercise of religious beliefs and one count of using an instrument of interstate commerce to communicate a threat to destroy a building by means of an explosive device.

According to authorities, Correa left the message, “On Sept. 11, 2011, there’s going to be a bomb in the building.”
