Muslim State of Ohio Employee Pleads Guilty to Bribery (Le Bump-ed)

The former State Deputy Treasurer of Ohio, exposed on The Jawa Report as a man with deep ties to Islamist extremists and of giving out state contracts to his friends and relatives, has pleaded guilty to bribery charges:

As his wife quietly cried in the federal courtroom, a former high-ranking Ohio official admitted yesterday to a $3.2 million kickback scheme that occurred while he was the stateís deputy treasurer.

Amer Ahmad, 39, now of Chicago, pleaded guilty to bribery and to conspiracy to commit bribery, wire fraud and money laundering, two of the eight counts against him.

That crying wife? She was one of the recipients int he kickback scheme.

Apparently he pleaded guilty to keep his wife out of jail. But wait, there's more:

The most recent was Columbus attorney Mohammed Noure Alo, 35, who pleaded guilty on Friday to wire fraud. As part of a plea agreement, a conspiracy charge against Alo will be dropped.

Ahmadís troubles might be just beginning.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas W. Squires said an investigation continues into questions about a contract that the state treasurerís office had during Ahmadís tenure with State Street Bank in Boston. The bank hired Alo, an immigration lawyer, as its lobbyist shortly before it received $32 million in contracts from the treasurerís office.

And how did Ahmad know Alo? The two attended a mosque with extremist ties together.

So, watch out for the cornholes guys!

Thanks to Barbarossa.

1 I guess we can consider this to be a Christmas gift. How do these people get in positions of authority? I could understand if it was Dearborn, Michigan.

2 Because they are of "The Religion of Peace" they are the best choice for all these government positions. They are trained to screw us from an early age.

3 I suppose some nice sociology major will come by shortly to explain that Ahmad is not to blame because in their culture this bribery is actually part of a civil servant's salary and we should not judge them for taking in a bit of baksheesh. But i do judge and i do blame and i do put them in prison because this is MY CULTURE.

7 In many places around the world, this is just the normal state of things. This is how business and government conduct themselves. If one is lucky enough to get a job with the state in some capacity, well, this is the way one gets paid. The stories of hungry people being charged a "fee" for applying for government aid in countries like India or the Phillipines are nothing new. If one is to survive in some under developed countries, this is how it is done. Customs agents demanding bribes above and beyond normal customs fees, police demanding money or something of value to let someone go, these are the conditions under which many in the world live. Is it any wonder that some may come to this country and not fully understand that this kind of stuff doesn't fly here? Sure, we have corruption, too, but when it is discovered, it is prosecuted, as in this case. Also, the corruption that we have is nowhere even close to the level that goes on in much of the developing world.
