City Councilman Took Record Bribe

Former Moreno Valley, CA City Councilman Marcelo Co "agreed to plead guilty to accepting $2.36 million in bribes to an undercover FBI agent posing as a real estate developer, in what officials called the largest bribe by an undercover agent in history," the Press Enterprise reports.

"As part of his payoff, Co vowed to line the pockets of other council members to secure a voting majority and inflate the value of a 38-acre parcel to more than $5 million that would be voted on by the council."
