Former D.C. Councilman Michael Brown Accepted Bribe In Redskins Mug

Former D.C. Councilman Michael A. Brown pleaded guilty to bribery charges Monday, admitting to federal court that he accepted $55,000 from undercover FBI investigators posing as representatives of a company that he thought was doing business with the city government.

Corruption in politics is a tale as old as time, but it was how Brown accepted the dirty money that lands him in "Capital Games Court." Patent pending.

From News4's Mark Segraves:

According to court documents, Brown admitted to accepting $15,000 in cash in a duffel bag that also contained a Nationals baseball cap and T-shirt. It was followed by another $10,000 in cash inside a Redskins mug.

I know, I know. "MUG SHOT." These stories more or less write themselves.
