Jack Johnson (D) (County Executive) And Wife Leslie Johnson Arrested in Federal Corruption Probe

Turns out a bra is just as bad a hiding spot for allegedly illicit cash as a freezer is when the FBI is knocking on your door. Also, not a good idea to talk about destroying and hiding evidence when they are listening in.

Better yet, try to to acquire any illicit monies.

"Just after 10:12 a.m. Friday, Leslie Johnson frantically phoned her husband, Jack B. Johnson, the Prince George's county executive.

Two FBI agents were at the front door of their two-story brick colonial in Mitchellville.

"Don't answer it," the county executive said, unaware that more agents were listening in.

Johnson ordered his wife to find and destroy a $100,000 check from a real estate developer that was hidden in a box of liquor.

"Do you want me to put it down the toilet?" Leslie Johnson asked.

"Yes, flush that," the county executive said.

But what about the cash? she asked - $79,600.

Put it in your underwear, the county executive told his wife.

She replied, "I have it in my bra" - which is where agents discovered the money after she answered the door.
