Temple City Councilwoman Judy Wong received six bribes from a local developer totaling $13,000 - taking half of some payments in cash and half in checks she gave to politicians she favored, according to newly released grand jury transcripts, according to a recent SGV Tribune article.
At Wong's suggestion, developer Randy Wang wrote checks to the election campaigns of state Board of Equalization President Judy Chu, now a congressional representative, as well as state Assemblymen Anthony Portantino and Mike Eng and state Sen. Carol Liu, Wang told the grand jury.
The proceedings led to the grand jury's 21-count indictment against Councilwoman Wong, former mayor Cathe Wilson, and former City Council candidate Scott Carwile. The three were charged with bribery, perjury and other crimes after the indictment was unsealed June 10.
