A widespread bribery scheme funneled hundreds of illegal aliens into a Winchester, Tenn.-based driving school, netting them fraudulent licenses. And six people, including one current and one former state employee, got more than $146,000, federal prosecutors said yesterday.
The U.S. attorney's office yesterday unsealed a six-count indictment of the six people who are accused of helping hundreds of people since May 2004 obtain driver's licenses they didn't earn. They have been charged with bribing state employees, accepting bribes and conspiracy.

A little inside poopsy on this. A friend of mine, actually my dearest and oldest, works in Murfreesboro. She saw a lot of this go down yesterday from the business she works at. The funny thing is, she has known for a year that the FBI has been casing this place. She told me about it months ago, but was unsure what was going on. She works in a branch of the court system, so she knew a "casing" of the joint when she it was right before her eyes. Very interesting.
