Corruption Alive and Well in PG County

Stacks of moneyImage via Wikipedia
As I have mentioned before, I live in Bowie, MD which is a part of Prince Georges County.  I don't pay too much attention to county politics, because the county is a Democrat stronghold.  In most county elections, the Democrat candidates frequently run unopposed.  During the most recent elections, the Democrats received nearly 90% of the county vote.

Big news broke on Friday though when outgoing county executive Jack Johnson and his wife Leslie were arrested in an FBI corruption sting.  Currently, the couple have been charged with evidence tampering and destruction of evidence, though the FBI has stated that they expect additional charges and arrests.  Leslie Johnson is accused of flushing a $100,000 check from a real estate developer down the toilet on the instruction of her husband.  She also managed to stuff nearly $80,000 cash into her bra.

During the week during my commutes, I listen to WMAL630 talk radio, in the morning it is former Congressman Fred Grandy, and in the evening Sean Hannity and Mark Levin.  On the weekends, they primarily have financial programming, however, they recently added another former Congressman to their talk radio lineup.  On Saturday evenings when I am out delivering pizzas, I get to listen to former Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth.

Hayworth was having a grand old time with the news that Leslie Johnson has somehow managed to stuff nearly $80,000 into her bra.  A large part of program was inviting callers to call in with suggestions of what to call her bra.  It was an entertaining bit of radio.  Some of the particularly memorable suggestions are listed below:
  • Melon's Bank
  • Fort Knockers
  • The Pay for Playtex Bra
  • Money Bags
  • The Over the Shoulder Money Holder
  • Double D Depository
I think you get the idea.  I would welcome any other suggestions that you can list here.
