Lets think about this......the feds stung her, after looking at the evidence,
she should do a long stretch. Just imagine all the people that she bilked through the years. According to the newspapers, this investigation isnt over,
I'm sure others will fall.

There was a big story in the Globe over the weekend about how she took a group of ministers to task for not supporting her. But her goose is pretty much cooked.
I'm not the biggest conspiracy theorist out there. But there's a funky smell in the air when Caucasian politicians in MA have been on the take "forevah" and for much more, then all of a sudden two AA elected officials are arguably set up and the headlines are screaming. Aside from that, though, Ms Wilkerson's history is pretty sketchy between skipped mortgage payments and unfiled taxes. None of it is worth the attention it's gotten regardless.

Ah yes, but you won't see the crooked Caucasians stuffing cash in their underwear across the street from the State House. To avoid getting caught, the corruption schemes need to be much more elaborate than that. And both Wilkerson and Turner forgot one critical thing - be in a position where you can control the damage you create. Not much question DiMasi is following the footsteps in the endless line of corrupt House speakers, but he was re-elected to his post in a landslide today. No question why - when you rule the jungle, you control the careers and livelihoods of those politicians below you. Obey or pay the penalty. It's a one-party state, and power is concentrated in the hands of a very few.

i think more is made of the place she chose to carry the money than the fact she was taking bribe money. putting that much money in your bra is something i think most women would do if they were in her shoes.

"in her shoes"? Meaning what? She took bribes. She's guilty.

What difference does it make where a criminal stashes his/her money?
