Let’s Play America’s Favorite Media Game!

Yes, it’s time for another episode of “Name That Party!”

Just after 10:12 a.m. Friday, Leslie Johnson frantically phoned her husband, Jack B. Johnson, the Prince George’s county executive.

Two FBI agents were at the front door of their two-story brick colonial in Mitchellville.

“Don’t answer it,” the county executive said, unaware that more agents were listening in.

Johnson ordered his wife to find and destroy a $100,000 check from a real estate developer that was hidden in a box of liquor.

“Do you want me to put it down the toilet?” Leslie Johnson asked.

“Yes, flush that,” the county executive said.

But what about the cash? she asked – $79,600.

Put it in your underwear, the county executive told his wife.

She replied, “I have it in my bra” – which is where agents discovered the money after she answered the door.

That conversation, as documented in an FBI affidavit, led to the arrest Friday of Jack Johnson and his wife. Each was charged with evidence tampering and destroying evidence in a case the U.S. attorney called the “tip of the iceberg” in a broader corruption investigation in Prince George’s.

In the entire story his affiliation is never mentioned. There is one other elected official mentioned and they do put his affiliation up

The arrests stunned Maryland’s political world, in which Jack Johnson has been a player for a generation. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) described it as a “sad day for Prince George’s County and for County Executive Johnson and his family.”

But then, of course, he’s not the one arrested along with his wife for corruption and bribery.

Update: I see Dan reads the wrong paper.

    She could fit $79,000 and change in her bra?!?!

    Someone wire me that amount of money; I want to test to see if that’s even POSSIBLE.

    Mayhaps Mrs. Johnson routinely uses gay deceivers, Ricki, providing ample space for that much moolah.

    I wonder if she might be charged for falsifying evidence as well?

    Must have been bills with lot’s of zeros or one heck of a bra.

  4. JeffS says:

    It didn’t matter in the end, major dad……in spite of her bra, she was busted.

    Well, you what they say “tit for tat.”
