Dean Zimmermann Bribery Scandal

PRT-skeptic blog

It will be interesting to see if Taxi 2000 and the CPRT will be drawn into this mess. Here's a post on Zimmermann asking the CPRT to help his campaign over at Lloydletta.

Here's some news reports just in:


Zimmermann allegedly took $5,000 last year and is said to have needed the money to repay a legal bill.

The court documents say Zimmermann also took bribes totaling $2,200 for his re-election campaign.

The affidavit also says that in June of this year, Zimmermann was recorded talking to the man working with the FBI about the rezoning issue and Zimmermann was heard saying he needed, "money, money, money."


In June, the FBI said when the witness asked how he could gain the support of Zimmermann, the councilman was on tape saying "money, money money."


On June 6, the developer agreed to pay $4,000 to $5,000 toward Zimmermann's legal bill, and made an audio recording of a meeting where the arrangement was made. The money was passed to Zimmermann at a June 14 meeting, which was audio- and videotaped.
