Anaheim corruption case expands with charges filed against the former head of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce

In a criminal complaint, the FBI accused the chamber’s former president and chief executive ...  of plotting with an unnamed political consultant to launder chamber money through the consultant’s public relations firm into [the former president's] personal bank account.

The money...was used to influence a financial institution’s decision to lend [him] money to buy a $1.5-million five-bedroom residence in Big Bear City, the complaint says.
