Ferris Kleem, the owner of Blaze Construction, which has been tied up in the federal corruption investigation in Cuyahoga County since the FBI's first raid, has long been suspected of providing bribes to Jimmy Dimora, Frank Russo, and others.

Turns out he was providing a little more than straight cash. Charges filed in federal court show that when Kleem shipped (by cargo freight, one would assume) Jimmy Dimora to Vegas for a little pampering in 2008, the embattled and bloated County Commissioner was also provided with a prostitute by Kleem.

There's transcripts of phone calls between Jimmy Dimora and Ferris Kleem where they talk about how good the hooker was. Ready to throw up in your mouth a little bit? Click through for the icky details.
