Former Fugees rapper Pras Michel was charged on Friday with funneling millions of dollars in illegal foreign contributions to Democratic candidates and groups in the 2012 elections.
In a four-part indictment, the Justice Department alleges that Michel and his co-conspirators gave 20 individuals over $850,000 to distribute under their names to Democrat campaigns. This practice, known as using “straw-donors,” is used to avoid contribution limits and donor disclosure requirements.
In response to allegations of covering up an alleged on-campus shooting, Westwood High School Principal Mario Acosta doubled down on the assertion that there was no threat on campus.
