FBI Finds Cash-Stuffed Envelopes in Probe of Congressman

"A key witness in a federal grand jury case involving Rep.David Rivera (R-FL) is still missing, but she left important evidence behind for investigators: at least four envelopes that had been stuffed with unreported campaign cash," the Miami Herald reports.

GOP operative Ana Alliegro delivered the cash-stuffed envelopes to a mail house "that sent out fliers in a congressional race against a Rivera political rival... The FBI has the envelopes to check for fingerprints and handwriting comparisons."

"Also in the hands of FBI agents: at least six invoices initially made out to the attention of David Rivera -- all marked paid 'cash' -- to cover the mailings for Democratic primary challenger Justin Lamar Sternad, a suspected Rivera straw-man candidate. The congressman demanded that his name be removed from the invoices with Wite-Out, documents and interviews show."
