Thao Clear of Bribery Charges

Ward One City Council Member and mayoral candidate Dai Thao (DFL) has had the dark cloud removed from his campaign. Yesterday, he was cleared, as we have expected all along, of the allegations of soliciting a bribe, by the Scott County Prosecutor’s office.  Deputy Chief Attorney Neil Nelson said, “After analyzing the facts and applicable law, we believe there is insufficient information on which to prosecute,” in his letter to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Scott County also did the same for Thao former campaign manager Angela Marlowe.

Now, we expect things will get interesting in the mayoral campaign because the Thao campaign has been silently blaming the Carter campaign for the release of the information to Fox 9 investigative reporter Tom Lyden.
