Representative Don Young (R-Alaska) is the latest elected official from the Last Frontier to get caught up in corruption. From CREW:
The latest revelation is that a Veco Corp. Executive is providing evidence about Rep. Don Young who has spent almost $500,000 from campaign funds on legal fees this year. The focus is on a scheme to funnel cash to the Congressman through golf tournaments. Yes, golf tournaments:
The contractor, Rick Smith, told investigators that Young personally received cash at the events. Once an important ally who helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for Young's election committee, Smith has become a key government informant.
The tip-off was all those guys in pink polo shirts and madras pants lined up outside Young's office.
