    Alaska drug probe uncovers massive tax fraud operation
    By Casey Grove | Anchorage Daily News

    While investigating Anchorage cocaine dealers, authorities discovered a massive identity theft and tax fraud operation that illegally claimed about $19 million in federal tax refunds, prosecutors said.

    U.S. Attorney for Alaska Karen Loeffler said Thursday it's unclear exactly how much cash the federal government paid out to the defendants: seven illegal immigrants, three living in the country legally and a corrupt Wells Fargo bank employee, the U.S. citizen, who helped the alleged fraudsters. The 10 residents of Mexico and the Dominican Republic, working with a United States citizen, sent at least some of the money they allegedly stole from the U.S. Treasury out of the country, according to an indictment handed up this week.

    "It's a very large tax fraud case, and what I would call organized crime," Loeffler said Thursday. "This is certainly the biggest (tax) case we've brought down in Alaska."

    Defense contractors plan to plead guilty to overbilling, paying kickbacks:mad:
    By Carol D. Leonnig,
    Published: April 10
    Alice R. Crites contributed to this report.

    Two brothers whose defense business flourished with the help of Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) plan to plead guilty next week to overbilling the Defense Department for their work and paying kickbacks to win business, according to their attorneys and court records.

    William and Ron Kuchera, who together owned Kuchera Defense Systems and Kuchera Industries in Windber, Pa., are accused by federal prosecutors of billing the military $650,000 for supplies they never provided and conspiring to inflate their bills for other military work.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...47-b44febada3a8_story.html?wpisrc=nl_politics

    Murtha was under invsestigation at the time of his death.
