And now for a little news about corruption just north of the Mexican border.

Indictments unsealed on Friday show that an ex-judge and three businessmen were arrested after a years-long federal investigation into corruption in El Paso County, the AP reports

Anthony Cobos, the former county judge, allegedly received bribes and campaign contributions in exchange for influence refinancing $40 million worth of county debt and replacing the county’s financial advisor.

In a separate 11-count indictment, businessmen Ruben Garcia, Cirilo Lara Madrid and Garcia’s LKG Enterprises Inc. are accused of offering bribes to get a lucrative county contract. The two are charged with theft of federal program funds, mail fraud and deprivation of honest services.

All four men can face 20-year jail sentences if convicted.
