At least one Prince George's county elected official, at the state level, has been declared by the FBI to have been involved in a bribery case to pass a Sunday liquor sales bill in Annapolis. There were several others involved from the liquor board and business owners who have been officially charged
“…in 2015, Son had asked the elected official to assist in passing the Sunday Sales bill by talking to one of his colleagues about the bill; both subsequently voted in favor of the bill. On April 22, 2015, after the passage of the bill, Son arranged a lunch with the elected official, with Paig and Lee. During the lunch, Son told the elected official to meet Paig in the men’s bathroom, saying that Paig is “…going to hook you up.” In the men’s bathroom, Paig handed the elected official an envelope containing a total of $4,000 cash. On October 19, 2015, Son received a $4,000 bribe payment from a lobbyist for his assistance in ensuring that the lobbyist’s clients received Sunday Sales licenses…”
One elected official apparently took a bribe and also influenced another official to vote yes on the Sunday Sales bill. At this point neither elected official has been named so it could have been a Senator or Delegate.
I am curious as to which official(s) was involved and what, if any, repercussions he/she will face. I also wonder why they haven't named the elected official.
