Cuyahoga County Corruption takes a "Right" Turn

Well look at that.... a Republican twist to the Cuyahoga County scandals...

A former state senator has been charged in a county government corruption investigation in Cleveland.

Federal prosecutors filed bribery and fraud charges Thursday against 69-year-old Anthony Sinagra, who is also the former mayor of suburban Lakewood.

He's accused of bribing former Parma school board member John Kevin Kelley for a consulting contract. Kelley has pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.

The alleged bribes were more than $3,000 in campaign contributions to Kelley and on two occasions more than $1,000 in cash and a bottle of wine. (WKYC)

I wonder if State Senator Tom Patton is starting to sweat yet?
