FBI Agents Arrest Cincinnati Democrat For Accepting Bribes in Exchange For Votes

CINCINNATI (FOX19) — Cincin­nati City Coun­cil­man P.G. Sit­ten­feld was arrest­ed ear­ly Thurs­day on fed­er­al cor­rup­tion charges, a source with knowl­edge of the inves­ti­ga­tion tells FOX19 NOW.

He is sched­uled to make his first appear­ance in fed­er­al court at 1:30 p.m., court offi­cials tell us.

Fed­er­al author­i­ties are hold­ing an 11 a.m. news con­fer­ence to dis­cuss an arrest in a pub­lic cor­rup­tion case.

Charges unveiled against Sit­ten­feld in his 20-page indict­ment allege he schemed to fun­nel mon­ey from devel­op­ers into a polit­i­cal action com­mit­tee (PAC) that he secret­ly con­trolled, court records show.

The “devel­op­ers” were real­ly under­cov­er FBI agents who hand­ed a total of $40,000 in Sit­ten­feld checks on three dif­fer­ent occa­sions, accord­ing to the indictment.

Sit­ten­feld, who could not be imme­di­ate­ly reached for com­ment, is run­ning to be Cincinnati’s may­or and con­sid­ered by some as the front run­ner with thou­sands of dol­lars raised for his campaign.
