- You'd think he could afford a better tie with all the money he funneled to Russo.
The dominoes in the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal continue to fall.
Daniel Weaver, the director of Cuyahoga County's Information Services Center, was indicted on bribery charges today. The filings allege that Weaver bribed "Public Official 2," who is most definitely auditor Frank Russo.
The Plain Dealer reports that Weaver allegedly passed bribes including cash and gift cards to Russo over two years, a practice which Weaver stopped only after the FBI raid.
In return, Weaver expected Russo's support on specific information technology projects that came before the county, prosecutors claim.
The charges were filed by way of criminal information, as opposed to an indictment. That is usually an indication that the defendant has cooperated with investigators.
