Things get interesting in Cuyahoga County

Back to that whole culture of corruption thing:
Up to 200 FBI and IRS agents are executing search warrants at the Cuyahoga County administration building, data center and engineer's office. They swept into the offices about 9 a.m., telling employees to shut down their computers.

The searches -- which extended to the homes of County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora and Auditor Frank Russo -- are part of a long-term public corruption investigation, according to an FBI spokesman.
Oddly the Plain Dealer was unable to ascertain the political affiliation of the politicians in question. I'll help them out. Republicans hardly ever get elected in that end of the state of Ohio. Heck, that is the same group of voters who keep electing Dennis "the Menace" Kucinich back to congress. Notice the article says it isn't just the FBI, but the IRS as well. Getting kickbacks is one thing, but failing to pay taxes on the kickbacks then you've really got trouble.
