Alaskan House of Rep Member Indicted by Feds

The Department of Justice issued a press release on its recent indictment of an Alaskan State Representative. The seven count indictment charges "extortion, conspiracy, bribery, and money laundering."  It alleges that, "Anderson and Lobbyist A participated in the creation of a sham corporation to conceal the existence and true origin of the payments, and used the sham corporation to funnel a portion of the $26,000 to Anderson."  The press release also notes that "according to the indictment, the FBI confidential source was a consultant for a private corrections company located outside the state of Alaska, and Anderson and Lobbyist A initiated contact with the FBI confidential source in order to solicit bribery payments."
