3 More Of The Alaska Legislature Busted By Feds.

Sat May 05, 2007 11:18 am

Well three more sitting and former Alaska State Legislators have been busted by the feds as part of the continuing bribery and influence pedaling scandel.

The three arrests made today where:
Current Rep. Vic Kohring
Fmr Speaker of the House Pete Kott
Rep. Bruce Weyhrauch (He fell out of his boat last week and damm near died of hypothermia)

Charges included both mail and wire fraud, bribery and extortion.

http://www.adn.com/news/politics/story/8853688p-8754302c.html

Reports are that there will be more arrests next week. The indictments mention a person "Senator A" who left office in January. Most informed opinions think that out of the 3 that left office at that time Ben Stevens, son of US Senator Ted Stevens is the most likely to be "Senator A". Also the company that was paying the bibes is reportedly Veco and it's president Paul Allen.

For those of you who want to know what corruption looks like, I have linked PDF copies of the indictments below. Maybe a couple of our legal beagles here could comment on how strong they actually are.

http://www.adn.com/static/includes/alaskapolitics/kottweyhrauch.pdf

These arrests are in addition to the arrest of former rep Tom Anderson also for bribery and other crimes against society. He is supposed to go to trial in the next couple of months. He is married to current state senator Lesile Mcguire.

Edit:Added link to PDF file of the earlier Tom Anderson indictment http://www.adn.com/static/includes/fbi_raid/120706_%20Indictment.pdf

Quoting L-188 (Thread starter):

Coincidence? I think not. Perhaps he knew the hammer was getting ready to fall and it's hard to arrest a dead man.

Or the City of Atlanta.......


There's some amount of corruption at every level of government. Sometimes that corruption is so widespread that some powerful folks get sent up the river.

This is going to be fun to watch.

It's about time these hoodlums got their asses in a bind. Ben Stevens has been crooked from day 1. He's a punk. Bill Allen and his VECO widgets are also in a bind.

VECO and some of our legislators have been in bed together for a decade or better. Nice to see the Feds finally getting on top of this.

Won't happen.

Yes, I know Uncle Ted is a US Senator, but I also "know" Uncle Ted - as has my Father - for years. I also know that sniveling little whiney-assed Benny Boy . . .

Ben wouldn't make a pimple on his Daddy's ass.

While I can not with certainty say Uncle Ted is clean, I can with a clean conscience say so.

Ben on the other hand, is corrupt, dirty, he wreaks of kick-backs. He's been fined for not reporting or under reporting income. He's been censured for failing to make full disclosure . . . specifically on the US$130K (+/-) a year he's been getting from Veco . . .

Hopefully they nail Benny Boy's ass to the wall . . .

Funny you bring him up, from the above press release.

The activities the Justice Department has alleged in the charges involve two VECO executives, CEO Bill Allen and Rick Smith, vice president of Community and Government Affairs," Said Amy Menard, and attorney representing VECO Corperation. "However it is our understanding that non of the corporations's subsidiary companies or their key executives have been invovled"

Don't you love lawyer double talk. I can't decided if she is saying Bill Allen isn't a key executive.

I am going to paste in the text of the DOJ statement on todays activities. It isn't on the USDOJ website yet, but it is a public domain statement.

THREE CURRENT AND FORMER ALASKA STATE LEGISLATORS INDICTED ON PUBLIC CORRUPTION CHARGES

WASHINGTON - A current elected member of the Alaska State House of Representatives and two former members, including a one-time Speaker of the House, have been indicted and arrested on multiple charges arising out of a federal investigation into public corruption in the state of Alaska, Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division announced today.

The indictments charge Victor H. Kohring, a current member of the Alaska State House of Representatives first elected in 1994; former Alaska House member Bruce Weyrauch, an attorney and member of the Alaska House from 2002 to January 2007; and Peter Kott, a member of the House from 1992 to 2007 who served as Speaker from Jan. 1, 2003 to Dec. 31, 2004. All three defendants were arrested today in Juneau, Alaska.

A four-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Anchorage on May 3, 2007 and unsealed today charges Kohring with one count of extortion under color of official right, one count of bribery, one count of attempted extortion under color of official right, and one count of conspiracy. The indictment alleges that Kohring solicited and received financial benefits from an entity identified in the indictment as "Company A," and that in exchange for those benefits, Kohring performed official acts as a member of the Alaska state legislature to further the company's business interests.

Specifically, the indictment alleges that Company A, a multinational corporation that provided services to the energy, resource and process industries and to the public sector, had significant financial interests in contracts from oil producers in Alaska, natural gas pipeline legislation, and a legislative proposal called the "petroleum production tax," or PPT, that would change the taxation of oil production.

The indictment alleges that in a series of meetings, Kohring corruptly solicited, demanded and accepted from the company's chief executive officer and a vice president a series of things of value-including $2,100 to $2,600 in cash payments and a $3,000 job for a relative of his-and also solicited, but did not receive, a $17,000 loan to pay credit card debt. Official acts taken in return included, according to the indictment: voting in favor of the PPT bill supported by Company A; lobbying other elected officials to support versions of the PPT bill; and providing official support for the natural gas pipeline legislation and the PPT bill.

A seven-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Anchorage on May 3, 2007, and unsealed today charges Kott and Weyhrauch with one count of conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right, bribery, and honest services mail and wire fraud. The indictment also charges Kott with one count of extortion under color of official right, one count of bribery, and one count of honest services wire fraud, and charges Weyhrauch with one count of attempted extortion under color of official right, one count of bribery, and one count of honest services mail fraud. The indictment alleges that Kott and Weyhrauch each corruptly solicited and/or received multiple financial benefits from Company A in exchange for each legislator's agreement to perform official acts as a member of the Alaska state legislature to further the company's business interests.

According to the indictment, Kott corruptly solicited, and the company agreed to provide, employment for Kott after he left the state legislature, as well as other things of value. At a meeting in April 2006 with the company's vice president and, via teleconference, the CEO, Kott said he had been successful in getting other state legislators to support the oil tax legislation favored by Company A, and that he believed the bill would pass. Kott allegedly said in a meeting with the company's CEO and vice president on May 7, 2006, that he had worked to kill an amendment to the PPT bill because Company A's CEO told him to do so. According to the indictment, Kott said, "I had to get 'er done. So I had to come back and face this man right here [pointing to the CEO]. I had to cheat, steal, beg, borrow and lie." In June 2006, Kott allegedly worked with Weyhrauch to seek an adjournment of a special session of the House before lawmakers could vote on an amendment to the PPT bill that the company did not support. In return for these and other actions, Kott demanded and Company A-through the CEO and vice president-provided $8,993 in payments, $2,750 in expenses paid to a polling company that worked for Kott's re-election campaign, and a future contract for Kott as a lobbyist for the company.

Weyhrauch allegedly solicited employment from Company A after he left the State House. Weyhrauch allegedly told the company's executives that he would support their position on the PPT bill. After mistakenly voting the "wrong way" on an amendment that the company and representatives of three other oil companies did not support, Weyhrauch changed his vote on instructions from Kott and the company's CEO.

The indictment alleges that Weyhrauch, like Kott, voted in favor of versions of the PPT bill supported by Company A and the three other companies, lobbied other lawmakers for their support, and offered assistance to Company A and its executives by providing official support for the natural gas pipeline and the PPT bill.

"These two indictments allege that the defendants sold their offices in Alaska's State House to an influential energy company in exchange for cash payments, loans, jobs for relatives and the promise of future employment," said Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher. "There is no room for bribery and extortion at any level of government - federal, state or local. We will work hard to bring to justice elected officials who betray their duty to their constituents. I thank the federal prosecutors on this case and the team of agents from the FBI and IRS for their dedication to this investigation."

"The citizens of Alaska deserve upstanding and ethical public officials serving in their state legislature. The public servants indicted today conspired to perform official acts in exchange for monetary and other financial gain to the detriment of Alaska, its economy, and its citizenry," said Assistant Director Kenneth W. Kaiser, FBI Criminal Investigative Division. "The FBI will continue to work with our local, state and federal partners to combat public corruption across all levels of government. No corrupt public servant is exempt from FBI scrutiny."

If convicted, Kohring, Kott and Weyhrauch each face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the extortion counts; a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the bribery count; and a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the conspiracy count. Kott and Weyhrauch also each face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the honest services mail and wire fraud counts.

An indictment is merely an accusation and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.

This case is being prosecuted by trial attorneys Nicholas A. Marsh and Edward P. Sullivan of the Criminal Division's Public Integrity Section, headed by Chief William M. Welch, II, and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Joseph W. Bottini and James A. Goeke from the District of Alaska. The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigative Division.

From local news here:


http://www.ktuu.com/Global/story.asp?S=6471456

In one exchange, after Kott successfully killed an amendment that VECO didn't like, he boasts, "I had to cheat, steal, beg, borrow and lie."

Allen replied, "I own your ass."
and

According to FBI sources and former legislators, this could be the first of additional indictments in the future, and there is a state senator included in the indictment identified only as "Senator A."

"Senator A" is further identified in the indictment as a member whose term ended in January of this year.The indictment says that Kott was directed by Allen and Smith to coordinate his actions with that state senator.

The only senators whose terms ended this January were Ralph Seekins of Fairbanks, Anchorage Sen. Gretchen guess and then-Senate President Ben Stevens.

Stevens has listed VECO as a client of his consulting business.


Sounds like Benny Boy is cooked . . . Using the moniker "Senator A" for who I am assuming is Stevens at this point indicates to me, they have something solid on him (Stevens) OR they already have Stevens and he's rolling on the other other three.

Either way, Stevens is cooked. So is Kott, Kohring and Weyhrauch. If, as indicated, they've got the exchanges on tape, it's going to be pretty damned hard to refute. Like a dash cam only better.

 rotfl 

I really hope they peg Stevens ass to a wall.

Alaska politics is definitely entertaining/depressing these days, between all of these indictments and Governor Cheerleader bungling the gas line.

Mr. Whitekeys had classic line (one of many); not verbatim but close to it: "If you can't make it in L.A., you move to San Francisco. If you can't make it in San Francisco, you move to Seattle. If you can't make it in Seattle, you're probably on the run from the law by then anyway, so you move to Alaska, where you'll fit right in!"

Another good one: Alaska is a place "where you don't need any talent, education, or intelligence to succeed".

I love this state.

Well, I give the GOv credit, at least she was open and honest in the dealings with AGIA . . . .

THe oil companies are balking now - of course - because their cushy deal with Frank the Bank (and apparently, Kohring, Kott and Weyrauch) - has gone down the crapper . . . so now they're backpeddlin' like Ducks coming in to Decoys.

See, they had it good with Frank the Bank . . . .and I have a hundred to one he was offered a similar deal (as Kott, Kophring, Weyrauch) for employment with someone (as a "consultant" of course) after his term as Gov.

By the by, where the hell is Frank the Bank these days? Still on his "Round the World Cruise" or still phoning that bimbo daughter of his in DC every day to tell her what to do?

The Ear a couple weeks ago said that sightings of him in Fairbanks were erroneous, and that he was in the lower 48 for the time being.

I did, however, run into Wally Hickel at the Captain Cook a week or so ago while I was getting my shoes shined. He's shorter than I would have thought.

Ha Ha Ha, I KNEW they'd get that POS sooner or later.

So, five elected officials in the State of Alaska are going down. No question. Bill J. Allen, President of Veco Inc, one of the largest oil field construction firms in the world (Alaska, Caribbean, Russian Far East) has plead out on all Federal charges, naming names and amounts and dates and times and places.

You can bet they have something. His delings in Canada? The UAE? The Russian Far East? Somewhere there is something lurking . . . .

Regardless, I had to laugh at Vic Kohring - and at Channel 2 news tonight. Although I'm a firm believer (usually) in "Innocent until proven Guilty", when you've got Tommy Tentpeg on TAPE asking for $17K and a job, and Bill Allen says "I own your Ass", well . . . . so much for "until proven guilty".  rotfl 

It's going to be a wild ride the rest of this legislative session. And there will be a Special Session to review the PPT. I think they oughta bill Kott, Weyrauch, Kohring, Stevens and Senator A (Cowdery) for the whole Special Session tab . . . afterall, twas their shady BS that'll cause it.

And even Gov Sarah isn't standing behind Kohring - said he should get out.

Amazed me the crook was on the floor voting on legislation today!

Well they re-indicted Tom Anderson today, and surprisingly enough he pled innocent again. And the Voice of the Times wasn't renewed by the Anchorage Daily News but I think the Daily Worker was looking to get rid of it anyway. This is just a really convient excuse.

But what I consider funny about is the ADN is claiming that getting rid of the VOT will, "cause wider views to be heard".

Sorry but despite that the Voice was veco's propaganda arm, wider voices will not be heard, instead the Daily Worker will live up to it's nickname.

Quoting L-188 (Reply 27):
But what I consider funny about is the ADN is claiming that getting rid of the VOT will, "cause wider views to be heard".

Agreed. That's a crock. The Daily Gag is a left wing rag of epic proportions . . . . as are all McClatchy publications.

Unfortunately, the City of Anchorage will not get Right Wing views again for some time. It would take a lot of $$$ to start another paper here in ANC . . . and there isn't a base to support it.
FOR THOSE THAT FOUGHT FOR IT, FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW OR UNDERSTAND
