Response to post #1: Many Banks are getting billion dollar bailouts. San Diego's Banks is going to the slammer. Best, Don Bauder

ADD ON BANKS: Yes, Surfpuppy, I should have put in the original bog item that this was a federal case. Best, Don Bauder

What about the people she paid off? Were they undercover or are they busted too?

Response to post #5: Excellent question. The federal government said she bribed an unnamed government employee. I picked up the announcement late at night when I was out of town and working with a laptop. I couldn't make calls to the U.S. attorney's office to find out who this unnamed recipient of bribes was. I assumed that the name was not released because the investigation was ongoing. I certainly hope the person is not being protected because he/she ratted on the briber. The bribee should go to the slammer, too. Best, Don Bauder

YES: THE REASON THAT THE BRIBE RECIPIENT WAS UNNAMED IS THAT THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Ciaffa just clarified that for me. The investigation is not complete. Best, Don Bauder
