Marcelo Co Pleads Guilty to Bribery

Marcelo Co, former City Councilman in Moreno Valley, pleaded guilty yesterday to taking a whopping $2.36 million bribe, supplied by an undercover FBI agent in exchange for promises to rezone certain real estate.  Co has agreed to cooperate with authorities in the ongoing corruption investigation, and remains free on $350,000 bail pending sentencing.

By popular demand, I am reposting the remarkable photo of the cash bribe piled high in front of Co.
