Cudahy: Angel Perales federal plea agreement

Cudahy of­fi­cials at the city’s highest levels tampered with and ma­nip­u­lated the res­ults of at least two city elec­tions, ac­cord­ing to fed­er­al doc­u­ments.

The doc­u­ments are part of the plea agree­ments of two Cudahy of­fi­cials, An­gel Perales and Dav­id Silva, who agreed to plead guilty to bribery and ex­tor­tion. The pa­pers shed light on a cul­ture of cor­rup­tion with­in City Hall, with ex­amples of wide­spread bribery, de­veloper pay­offs and voter fraud.
